Today, the game was announced by the developers on 29 April and today the game service was also discontinued at 10:30 am Indian time. This means that players will no longer be able to play matches in games and will also not be able to spend their in-game currency. The service of the game has been discontinued and according to the company, player support for PUBG Lite will also be discontinued from May 29, after which the game launched in India in July 2019 will be completely finished. However, the Facebook page of PUBG Lite will continue to run even after it is closed.
Game company Krafton has not issued any statement about why the game is being shut down completely. The game became quite popular soon after launch, as it ran smoothly on low-end PCs. On top of that it was also a free-to-play game. In December last year, developers scrapped the L-COIN (paid cash) currency system designed to buy skin and costume in order to make the game 100 percent free-to-play.
