BGMI ban in India? In a shocking turn of events

Battlegrounds Mobile India, one of the most popular online games, has disappeared from Google PlayStore and Apple App Store. BGMI is the avatar of the previously banned PUBG Mobile India. In a shocking development, the Indian version of the popular battle royale game PUBG Mobile, Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) was removed from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. That means Indian users cannot download BGMI from these stores now. This comes as shocking news to all BGMI fans as there was no prior information regarding the removal of this battle royale game in India. Notably, another popular online game, Garena Free Fire ban, was recently imposed in India. These apps were banned because of their ties to China and because they affect state security.

There has been no official comment so far from the BGMI developer, South Korean company Krafton. However, MySmartPrice has reached out to the BGMI developer team regarding the removal of the app from the Play Store and App Store. “We are clarifying how BGMI has been removed from Google Play and will let you know once we receive specific information,” MySmartPrice was quoted as saying by a BGMI official.

Meanwhile, TechCrunch’s Manish Singh told Twitter that “BGMI has been removed from the Play Store due to a government order – a person familiar with the matter. The shocking disappearance of BGMI from these app stores left players confused, although the official reason behind the game’s removal has yet to be officially confirmed.

Is BGMI Ban in India?

BGMI came as a savior for the fans of battle royale games after the Indian government banned PUBG Mobile India in 2020 citing security concerns. A year ago, PUBG Mobile lookalike BGMI quickly took its place in India. However, this sudden removal of the app from the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store has caused confusion as this game now has no direct or indirect ties to China.

Despite this, despite the disappearance of BGMI from app stores, players can still access the game if they have already downloaded it on their smartphone. But players can no longer download BGMI.

So, is BGMI ban in India? That cannot be said without hearing the final words of BGMI developer Krafton or the Indian government.
