As the months drag on since the banning of PUBG Mobile in September, some teams have made the difficult decision of letting go of their rosters, MegaStars is one such team that comes to mind. Just days after Fnatic parts ways with ScoutOP, the long time pro player and streamer has decided to release the lineup of Team XSpark due to the uncertainty of the game being back in India. 

Scout made the announcement via an Instagram story, saying, “As you know pubg is banned by the government in India and we all completely respect the decision, so I have decided to release the line up as there is no news regarding PUBG Mobile getting back in India soon”.

Members of the squad included Ammar “Destro” Khan, Mohamed “EvoO” Shahil, Shivamm “420op” Raghav and Aditya. According to GemWire, the players thanked Scout for the opportunity on their stories. Team XSpark was set to compete in PMPL South Asia before the Indian government’s decision to ban the game. While PUBG Mobile India return is imminent, it has been delayed due to various reasons. Only time will tell when the game will officially be playable again for millions of its Indian fans and esports players.
