Videogame developers Krafton recently released their revenue report for 2022's Q3. But Indian gamers have taken special report to this report as the company also said that they are making continuous efforts to bring back BGMI services and continue putting money into the Indian gaming market.
This is the second occasion where Krafton has officially talked about their efforts to re-release BGMI, as they announced in July 2022 that they would resolve the government's concerns and bring the game back to the country. However, the Videogame developer hasn’t mentioned any exact timeframe or release date for the game's return.
The statement released by the company said, "KRAFTON is continuing its efforts to resume services for BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA (BGMI) and will continue investing in the Indian games market."
This biggest update regarding the game since the Founder & CEO of War Mania Hrishav Bhattacharjee posted an update on the situation. In September 2022, Bhattacharjee claimed that several private meetings have been held between the government and Krafton over BGMI’s ban.
Bhattacharjee further talked about the key reason behind the ban was data privacy issues, which have been resolved, and gamers can hopefully start playing the game in mid-October or early November.
The Instagram story said, “So, after several private meetings between the government and Krafton, the main issue, that is data privacy, has been solved, but some internal issues are going on, and for that reason, the delay is happening! We can expect a comeback in mid of October or else starting of November, but guys, it will be back, that is for sure.”
The Government of India banned Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) early this year and then Google and Apple removed the Krafton-developed game citing directives from the Indian government. This ban came a year after Tencent's Player Unknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) was banned, the game BGMI is based on.
