Krafton, the South Korean game studio behind Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), has reignited hope for fans of the game with the introduction of new in-game events. Despite the fact that these events have now been removed from the game, their introduction without the need for a Play Store or App Store update or an in-game update has sparked optimism that the game may soon be unbanned in India.
BGMI was blocked by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) in India due to data security concerns. BGMI has remained unavailable on Google Play and the App Store since its ban. However, the game’s servers are still functional in India.
The recent addition of new content, albeit briefly, has given fans hope that the game’s services may be restored in India. Krafton has consistently demonstrated its commitment to restoring BGMI’s services in the country, and the introduction of new events suggests that the company is still actively working towards this goal.
However, there is still a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the game’s future in India. Neither Krafton nor the Indian government have provided any concrete information on the matter. As a result, it is more practical for fans to wait for official confirmation from Krafton rather than putting their faith in online unban rumors.
Krafton removes five newly added BGMI events.
However, just as quickly as they were introduced, the events disappeared from the game without any explanation from Krafton. Participants are now ineligible to take part in the challenge or claim any rewards. The sudden removal of the events has disappointed many fans who were looking forward to earning rewards and enjoying new content in the game.
The reason behind the removal of the events has not been revealed, and there is no official statement from Krafton on the matter. It is unclear whether the events will be reintroduced in the future or if this was a one-time experiment by the game developers.
Hope for BGMI’s unbanning
Despite the disappointment of the removed events, the introduction of new content in the game after months of silence from Krafton has reignited hopes for the unban of BGMI in India. There have been rumours of an impending date in April 2023, but neither Krafton nor the Government of India have confirmed anything yet.
It is important to note that players should not fall for fake download links disguised as BGMI update APK files. Krafton has warned fans to avoid unauthorized sources for downloading the game, as they might download bloatware and malware on their devices. Installing the game from any unofficial source can also lead to account suspensions and put players’ data at risk.
The introduction of new events in BGMI has sparked hope for fans that the game may soon be unbanned in India. However, until there is official confirmation from Krafton or the Indian government, fans should remain cautious and avoid any unauthorised sources for downloading or updating the game. While it is understandable that fans are eager to see the game return, it is important to prioritise data security and follow official channels for any updates or news regarding BGMI’s status in India.
