Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) Set to Return with Temporary Restrictions and Adjustments


Krafton, the company behind the popular battle royale game Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), has made a significant announcement regarding the game’s comeback in India. Following the ban imposed by the Indian government in July 2022, Krafton expressed their gratitude to the government for lifting the ban and confirmed that BGMI would soon be available for download. However, there are conditions attached to its return. BGMI will initially be accessible for a three-month period under close monitoring by government officials. This monitoring phase aims to analyze the game’s operations and ensure compliance with regulations. If the game violates any regulations during this period, it risks being banned again.

However, successful completion of the monitoring phase without any issues could lead to a permanent unbanned status. Reports suggest that certain adjustments need to be made before BGMI becomes downloadable. These adjustments include the introduction of a time limit restricting daily gameplay hours and potential changes to the color of blood in the game, which was previously depicted as red. Krafton’s CEO, Sean Hyunil Sohn, expressed gratitude to the Indian gaming community for their support and patience and emphasized their commitment to the Indian gaming ecosystem. Krafton aims to invest in the Indian gaming industry, collaborate with local developers, and promote the use of cutting-edge technologies.

They also recognize the importance of providing skilling and employment opportunities for Indian talent. Vibhor Kukreti, Head Government Affairs at Krafton, emphasized the company’s compliance with regulations and commitment to responsible gaming practices. They encourage users to prioritize their well-being and follow responsible gaming guidelines. While the game’s availability is imminent, no specific timeline has been announced for its availability on the App Store and Play Store. Overall, Krafton’s announcement signifies a positive development for Indian fans of BGMI, as they eagerly await the game’s return with temporary restrictions and adjustments aimed at ensuring compliance and responsible gaming practices.
