The PUBG Mobile ban has been one of the hottest topics in the Indian mobile gaming industry in the last couple of months. The game had been the biggest mobile game in the country before it was banned by the Indian government.

After seeing no sign of PUBG Mobile coming back, many gamers have then moved to other battle royale or fps games. In a recent report by CMR, they have revealed four games that have benefited the most since PUBG Mobile being banned in India. 

These are the top 4 games that see the highest rise in their player base after the PUBG Mobile ban in India. 

1. Call of Duty Mobile

Call of Duty Mobile appears to get lots of benefits from the ban. However, even before that, the game has already been a force to be reckon with. Now, thanks to the ban, 67 percent of players have shifted from PUBG Mobile to COD Mobile.

This is a first-person shooter game that offers 7 maps and a battle royale mode. One downside of this game is that it doesn't offer as many maps as PUBG Mobile does.

2. Garena Free Fire

Another big rival of PUBG Mobile, Free Fire had been fiercely competing with COD Mobile and PUBG Mobile even before the ban. Given its massive popularity in India, it is no surprise when it has welcomed 54 percent of the PUBG Mobile players when it was shutdown.

In Free Fire, players can access attractive gameplay with a wide range of characters. It is also often considered to be easier to play than Fortnite or PUBG. Each match usually lasts around 10 minutes and players are placed on an island along with 49 other players.

3. Fortnite

Fortnite is no stranger in the battle royale genre. It has been one of the icons of the battle royale games on consoles and PC ever since it was first released. The game is not only popular in the gaming scene, but has also reached a wider range of audience, notably famous rapper Drake and multiple other celebrities.

However, it seems like the game couldn’t compete against the likes of Free Fire, PUBG Mobile, and COD Mobile. That could a result of many factors, one of which might be the lack of responsiveness in touch controls, not available on Google Play Store, no dedicated Indian server, among others. Regardless, 36 percent of players still switched to Fortnite. 

4. Battlelands Royale

Battlelands Royale is another title that quickly grabs a substantial share of PUBG Mobile players after the ban. This is also a multi-player game for mobile devices on Android and iOS. Even though it is very similar to other battle royale games, but with a little twist. For example, only 32 players will compete in real-time battles, which usually last around 3 to 5 minutes.
