BGMI, the most played game in India, is currently banned, but Crafton, the publishing company of BGMI, has indicated that it will come back soon. Let us tell you that Battle Grounds Mobile India has more than 100 Million i.e. 10 Crore downloads and 70 lakh people had applied for its Pre-Registrations. BGMI is a battle royale game and because of the unique features in this game, this game is so famous in India. In July 2022, the Government of India had banned this game due to lack of data privacy of the customers and since then till now this game is banned in India.
Krafton’s statement on the return of BGMI
Publishing company Krafton has given an update on BGMI in its third Earnings Report for the year 2022. According to media reports, the company has said that, ‘After all, Crafton is continuing its efforts to resume services for Battleground Mobile India (BGMI) and will also continue to invest in the Indian game market’. In this update, Crafton has not told when users will be able to enjoy the BGMI game, but efforts are on from the company to bring back the game.
Gaming industry said this
Warmania CEO Hrishav Bhattacharjee had said that BGMI will soon return to India and he had also told that between December 25, 2022 and the first week of February, 2023, BGMI’s services will start in India. Many other people associated with the gaming industry also agreed that BGMI can make a comeback soon. This is very big news from the point of view of the users, if this game comes back in India then surely once again there will be panic in the E-Sports industry.
Krafton’s biggest challenge at launch
To restart BGMI’s services, the biggest challenge before Crafton will be that how can it bring back this game keeping in mind the National Security and Data Privacy because for this reason the Government of India has enacted the Information Technology Act, 2000. This game was banned under Section 69A of (Information Technology Act 2000) and this time if there is a slight mistake then the company may have to suffer heavy losses, so Crafton has to blow every single step. Gotta keep doing it.
