Will the ban be lifted from BGMI? The company will solve the problem together with the government

BGMI ban: This is the second time that Crafton is facing a ban on its mobile game in India. Earlier in September 2020, the company’s flagship title PUBG Mobile was banned along with 117 other Chinese apps due to data security concerns.

Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) developer Crafton has said that it will collaborate with Indian authorities to get the ban lifted from its popular battle royale mobile game. Crafton CFO Bae Dong-geun said during the company’s courtly earnings call that they understand the concerns of the Indian government and will work with them to find a way to lift the ban on the game.

Dong-geun said, “We are running the service directly based on stringent data protection standards and monitoring and understand and fully respect the concern of the Indian government. We will be working closely with the authorities to find ways for users in India to continue enjoying BGMI.” 

The company will try to remove the BGMI ban

BGMI was removed from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store under an interim order of the Government of India on 28 July 2022. After this the app was also removed from the website of Codashop and BGMI. 

This is the second time that Crafton is facing a ban on its mobile game in India. Earlier in September 2020, the company’s flagship title PUBG Mobile was banned along with 117 other Chinese apps due to data security concerns.

After this, South-Korean company Crafton broke ties with Chinese partner Tencent and took the responsibility of publishing in India itself. It set up a subsidiary in the country and invested $100 million in areas such as video games, e-sports and entertainment.

Krafton India also introduced an exclusive battle royale title BGMI for India, but this too was banned last month over data security concerns . Minister of State for Information Technology Rajiv Chandrashekhar recently told the media that “any app that sends back data in violation of our laws will be taken down. It has nothing to do with which country the app originated”.

Battlegrounds Mobile India or BGMI is very special to the craft. The game garnered 100 million or 100 million pre-registrations before launch and became one of the top games in the country as soon as it was launched. BGMI earned $33 million or Rs 262 crore in the last one year.
