INDIAN GOVERNMENT BANNED 'DEAD BY DAYLIGHT MOBILE'

INDIAN GOVERNMENT BANNED ‘DEAD BY DAYLIGHT MOBILE’

In a startling turn of events, Dead by Daylight Mobile has been banned in India by the country’s government. On March 15, Behaviour Interactive and NetEase launched an enhanced version of the game globally for Android and iOS smartphones. The news regarding the game’s removal from both mobile platforms was revealed by the official Twitter account of Dead by Daylight Mobile. The company stated:

“To stay in line with the interim order from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology in India, we will be removing Dead by Daylight Mobile from the Storefronts. Once it is removed, players in India will no longer be able to access and play Dead by Daylight Mobile.”

The Indian government has banned several games and hundreds of Chinese apps previously over concerns about data security and privacy. Tencent, NetEase, and Alibaba, among other tech companies, had apps banned. Dead by Daylight Mobile may have been banned due to similar reasons, although it is not clear whether any in-game data from the game was transferred to servers in China.

The Indian government has not issued an official statement about the Dead by Daylight Mobile ban. Behaviour Interactive has not revealed any plans about bringing the game back to India. The developer has said that they will update fans as soon as possible about the status of the game in India.

In conclusion, the removal of Dead by Daylight Mobile from storefronts in India is due to an interim order issued by the MeitY. The ban is thought to be related to data security and privacy concerns similar to those that led to the ban of other games like Free Fire and BGMI/PUBG Mobile. While those who already have the game downloaded may still be able to play, they will not receive automatic updates from Google Play Store and App Store. The Indian government has not yet issued an official statement about the ban, and Behaviour Interactive has not disclosed any plans to bring the game back to India.
