Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), the modified version of PUBG Mobile designed for the Indian audience, is set to make a comeback. Krafton, the developer of BGMI, expressed gratitude to the Indian authorities for allowing them to resume operations. The game was previously banned due to security concerns, but now it will be available for download soon.
Krafton’s CEO, Sean Hyunil Sohn, expressed excitement about welcoming back the Indian gaming community and affirmed their commitment to the Indian gaming ecosystem. The company aims to invest in the Indian gaming industry, collaborate with local developers, and promote technological advancements.
BGMI’s return is subject to a three-month trial approval, during which time the government will monitor issues such as user harm and addiction. To address concerns, Krafton will implement a daily time limit for the game and modify certain aspects like animations depicting blood.
The specifics of the time limit and accessibility details are yet to be clarified. Despite these conditions, fans can look forward to an optimized gaming experience tailored for Indian players.
Sohn emphasized that Krafton acknowledges the significance of offering skill development and job prospects for Indian talent, enabling them to enhance their skills and succeed in the gaming industry. Krafton’s announcement of BGMI’s return aligns with recent media reports that have highlighted the ongoing discussions between the company and Indian authorities.
