[Updated] PUBG Mobile to Stop Working in Some Regions For One Day

pubg mobile shut down

PUBG Mobile is showing up a notice right now that starting at midnight on April 4, Tencent Games will shut down all its services for a full day. The notice in the game, as shown in the image above, doesn’t elaborate much further than that. However, it makes it plenty clear that starting midnight tonight, PUBG Mobile will not work for the next 24 hours.

Naturally, this brings up the question “Why?”

Well, according to the official Weibo account of Tencent Games, the company has taken this decision to suspend all its services for one day to honor and offer condolences to those who have martyred in the fight against Coronavirus.

The post reads (translated from Chinese): “To express deep condolences to the martyrs and compatriots who died in the fight against New Crown Pneumonia, Tencent Games will be suspended for one day from 0:00 on April 4 thin, including mainland China and Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan regions. May the dead rest in peace, may the living work hard, and may the motherland flourish.”

China is going to observe a “National Mourning Day” on 4th of April for victims of COVID-19, and Tencent’s decision is in accordance with that. In China, tomorrow, the national flag will fly at half-mast, and all embassies and public recreational facilities will be suspended across the country.

Update 1 (04/04/2020 12:09 am)

Alright, so the game seems to be working in India leading us to think that even though the company displayed the notice to everyone, the shutdown only affects the regions mentioned in Tencent’s Weibo post — Mainland China and Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan.

If you’re from one of these regions, let us know if the game has stopped working for you.

Also, if you’re not from any of these regions and the game is still not working for you, do let us know about that as well.


  1. Hello ,MY pubg mobile lite is not working . And they show the server is not connected .and request time out

  2. Please stop this game as our child is busy in playing this dirty game so please do a favour for us and stop this game for a while. This game make the mind fresh

  3. pubg game be pure देश के लिए और आज की जेनरेशन के लिए बहुत विशेला और खतरनाक जहर है जो धीरे धीरे इस नई पीढ़ी को ख़तम कर रहा है
    इस गेम को पूर्ण रूप से बन्द करके और बैन कर दिया जाए।
    नहीं तो ये नई जेनरेशन बर्बाद हो जाएगी।
    ये एक बीमरी है,एक लत है,इसको kheelne वाला ये भूल जाता है कि उसका भविष्य और ऐम क्या है,ये गेम खेलने वाले को दिमागी रूप से बीमार बना देता है और खेलने वाल साईको हो जाता है

  4. Please verify the source of this news, because PUBG Mobile haven’t posted anything related to this to any of their social media handles.

  5. That notice was actually a mistake, the game will only be shut down in Taiwan, Macau and mainland china. Apologies for the inconvenience.

  6. Hi my favorite game is pubg there is only one problem in it that is lagging so please I request you to fix it soon thank you.

  7. If tencent really wants to honor the doctors and nurses, they should not stop the service. Instead they should provide free UC for 1 day.

  8. This must be an April fools joke, because the game is working perfectly fine. Plus they should first pay respects to those who died playing the game (in real life) that should be the priority to them, then the disease.

  9. Shutting down a video game and re-opening the Wuhan Market doesn’t sound like offering condolences.

  10. Its not form midnight, all time in PUBG are GMT … i.e 5:30am.
