NEW DELHI: A year after PUBG Mobile was outlawed in India, South Korean game maker Krafton staged a comeback by re-releasing the identical title under the Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) moniker. However, it appears that BGMI has also been outlawed in India.
The BGMI game has been confirmed to have been deleted from both the Google Play store and the Apple App store, despite the fact that the IT ministry has not yet made an official announcement.
The removal of BGMI from the Google Play store and the App store was explained by Krafton, who also confirmed the news, adding, "We will let you know as we have specific information."
Google has acknowledged that it has a formal order from the government to take the game down.
The statement read: "Upon receiving the ruling, in accordance with established procedure, we have contacted the concerned developer and have disabled access to the software that remained on the Play Store in India.
