The relaunch of the banned Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) game is possible. While it’s unclear whether an unban is in effect, the recent post on the game’s official Instagram account has sparked interest among players. Until date, much of the conjecture about a possible return of the popular title has been fueled by the community.
Krafton’s post is merely a picture with the following text:
“It’s time to switch on notifications.”
BGMI was founded for Indian players when PUBG Mobile was banned in the country. However, due to government directives, the Indian customer had to face the same fate in 2022 as well. Now it looks like some progress has been made in Crafton’s efforts to make games available to gamers again.
The possible return of BGMI might be enormous for the Indian gaming scene.
When the Indian government banned the BGMI in 2022, many BGMI players were left devastated. Developer Crafton, on the other hand, has always been quick to reverse the decision. The same opinion was expressed by eSports professionals involved with the game.
What exactly the Instagram post represents remains to be seen. Fans refer to recent reports of MeitY temporarily lifting the ban, as well as new job ads from Krafton India appearing online. The community has been quick to link the rumors and how this could signal the return of their favorite games.
Also, the makers never formally shut down the servers of BGMI. The title is not yet available in the Android and iOS app marketplaces. Fans continue to take the risk of playing games and furthering their in-game accounts through third-party websites.
If Battlegrounds Mobile India is not banned, it could have far-reaching consequences for the Indian gaming sector. The mobile title quickly became a favorite among both e-sports professionals and amateurs. The current prohibition has hindered the expansion of the game’s environment. A possible feud would benefit the community and restore the former glory of the title.
