Krafton developed and published Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), an online multiplayer battle royale game. Krafton Corp., a South Korean company, created both PUBG and BGMI. After China's Tencent published PUBG in India, the government banned the game and as a result, BGMI is the Indian equivalent of the popular PUBG after the ban.

BGMI Set to Return to India with Certain Conditions

After being banned in India due to security concerns related to Chinese-linked apps, Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) is reportedly making a comeback. Krafton, the company behind the game, expressed its gratitude to the Indian authorities for allowing the relaunch of BGMI in the country. Although an official relaunch date has not been announced yet, it is expected that the game will soon be available for download on iOS and Android devices. Users who already have the game installed may encounter a notice stating that the server is not yet online.

The Temporary Lifting of the BGMI Ban

According to a reports, the government of India has decided to temporarily lift the ban on BGMI for a period of three months. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) plans to issue an order to unblock BGMI from the Google Play Store and the App Store. The report cites a top-level MeitY official as the source of this information. However, during the three-month period, BGMI will be closely analyzed and monitored. If the app is found to violate any of the country's rules, it may face another ban.

Changes and Adjustments Expected

BGMI is anticipated to make a comeback with several changes and adjustments. Rumors suggest that there will be restrictions on playing time, potentially limiting the number of hours users can spend on the game. Additionally, Krafton plans to reduce the graphic violence in the game by altering the color of blood. Previously, players in India could customize the color of blood to red or green, but it is expected that the default setting will be implemented.

Awaiting Official Confirmation

Despite ongoing rumors, there has been no official announcement from Krafton or the Indian government regarding the return of BGMI to the country. Such speculations have been circulating for several months. Nevertheless, even with the ban lifted, BGMI will face scrutiny and will need to comply with specific conditions to continue operating in India. As one of the most popular battle royale games in the country, boasting over 100 million users, the reentry of BGMI is highly anticipated.
