PUBG was abruptly banned in India in just under two years ago, which prompted the establishment of BGMI.

Following a government directive, Battlegrounds Mobile India, also known as BGMI, has vanished from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. For the time being, those who already have it set up on their devices can still use it. Many users were shocked when the removal abruptly occurred late on Thursday night. Google has already acknowledged that it was given a government order instructing it to delist the well-known online game. In reaction to the Indian government banning numerous Chinese apps, including the then-popular Playerunknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), due to security concerns, Krafton created BGMI. Garena Free Fire, a similiar game, was also prohibited in February of this year.

Rumors and conjecture about potential justifications for a ban included links to recent suspicions that violent video games were involved, as well as fresh worries about data privacy and online security as #BGMI and #BGMIban began trending on Twitter. It's still possible to download New State Mobile, a different app that Krafton publishes.

A Google official reportedly acknowledged to Reuters that the removal followed a court order. The order's specifics are awaited.
Over the past few years, developer Krafton claims to have invested over $100 million in the creation of BGMI and an esports ecosystem in India. Additionally, the business just revealed that BGMI now has more than 100 million registered users. Changhan Kim, the CEO of Krafton, had stated at the time, "India is a significant market for Krafton. We are committed to building a strong gaming environment and are optimistic about the potential in the nation. Our attention has shifted to constantly improving the mobile gaming experience for our expanding audience and investing in this region's thriving start-up scene.
