PUBG Mobile recently rolled out a health safety warning feature for its Indian users, that locked players out of the game for 24 hours after six hours of gameplay. However, the warning has now been removed with the company claiming it was a ‘system error’.

The feature was rolled out to Indian players with the latest anniversary update, which also marked the beginning of season 6 of the game. After the health safety feature, Indian users took to multiple forums, Reddit and Twitter to show their displeasure at being restricted to six hours of gameplay. While withdrawing the warning, the company claimed that the feature was a system error that has now fixed.

It’s not clear if Tencent Games has plans of releasing such a restriction in the near future to restrict the amount of time people can spend playing the game. It could also come as a parental control feature that the company embeds into the app.
