Breaking News: Battlegrounds Mobile India(BGMI) was taken down from Google Play Store & Apple App Store in India on Government orders. See what Google said about the ban on BGMI.

Yes! It's true, BGMI or Battlegrounds Mobile India made by South Korean Company, Krafton has been pulled off from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store in India. 


It was a "renewed" version of the world-renowned game-PUBG(Player's Unknown Battleground) that was banned by the Government of India on September 2, 2020 as part of the initiative to remove all Chinese apps that pose a threat to India's national security.



BGMI recently celebrated its 100 million users in India. Some are even speculating that it will get banned in India just like PUBG.


Why was BGMI Removed?

Developers at Krafton India said,

“We are clarifying how BGMI was removed from the Google Play store and the App store and will let you know once we get specific info"

According to reports, the game has been pulled because of a government order. Though, a clear reason hasn't been stated by the Indian government yet. But this news arrived soon after the reports of a popular Indian law enforcement case in which an alleged killing over PUBG was arrested.

Google released a statement saying,

"On receipt of the order, following established process, we have notified the affected developer and have blocked access to the app that remained available on the Play Store in India."

Though, we all know BGMI was pretty much seen as a PUBG Mobile replacement meant for Indian gamers. But the company insisted that the game was different.


Krafton's New Game Still on PlayStore!


Incidentally, Krafton’s new game entitled- ‘New State’ in India possesses a similar shooter format gaming. It is still available for iOS and Android download. Other states are calling it PUBG: New State. But in India you can find it under the name ‘New State’ only.
