After being banned in India for nearly 10 months, Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) has now appeared on the Google Play store for Android smartphones. However, despite the game’s page being visible, players are currently unable to play it. To access the page, you can either search for the game on Google or visit BGMI’s official website and click on the Play button, which will direct you to the download page. Although the game is listed as free to download, the servers have been shut down, preventing any successful downloads. KRAFTON, the developer of BGMI, has acknowledged this as a technical error and is working on resolving it.
Last week, KRAFTON announced the lifting of the ban on BGMI in India. Sean Hyunil Sohn, CEO of KRAFTON, Inc. India, expressed gratitude to the Indian authorities for allowing the resumption of BGMI’s operations. He thanked the Indian gaming community for their support and patience during the past months and expressed excitement about welcoming players back to the platform. Sohn highlighted KRAFTON’s commitment to the Indian gaming ecosystem, emphasizing their India-first approach, investments in the local industry, collaborations with Indian developers, and promotion of innovative technologies for growth.
Vibhor Kukreti, Head of Government Affairs at KRAFTON, Inc. India, also expressed appreciation to the authorities for permitting the restart of BGMI operations. KRAFTON, Inc. is a responsible South Korean organization that adheres to the law and has implemented measures to ensure regulatory compliance. They aim to support, sustain, and promote the growth of the gaming ecosystem in India.
KRAFTON’s announcement regarding the lifting of the ban on BGMI in India marks a significant development for the gaming community. With the game now available on the Google Play store, players eagerly await the resolution of the technical error that currently prevents them from downloading and playing BGMI.
The CEO of KRAFTON, Sean Hyunil Sohn, expressed sincere appreciation for the support and patience demonstrated by the Indian gaming community throughout the challenging months following the ban. Sohn recognized the positive impact of gaming in bringing people together and expressed his enthusiasm for welcoming players back to the BGMI platform.
Furthermore, Sohn reaffirmed KRAFTON’s commitment to the Indian gaming ecosystem. Their India-first approach demonstrates a dedicated focus on the Indian market, and they have made substantial investments in the local gaming industry. Collaborations with Indian developers and the promotion of cutting-edge technologies are key elements of their strategy for fostering growth and innovation.
