Battle royale players are stunned because their most loved game, BGMI, has been removed from the market in the United States. It was released with the game initially being removed out of Google Play Store, then the Google Play Store and later removed from on the iOS App Store.
The title, ironically, was celebrating its first anniversary only a couple of weeks back.
For those who aren’t aware the game’s original title, PUBG Mobile, was outlawed along with other 120 Chinese apps in the month of September of 2023. The game returned in July 2021, with the new name, Battlegrounds Mobile India, with the guarantee that it conforms to the rules of all governments and regulations.
Krafton is working to reach out to the authorities to lift its ban from the game. Fans are eager to play and enjoy the ultimate experience in survival royale on their smartphones.
Battlegrounds Mobile India was banned by Section 69A of the Information Technology Act, 2000.
There is no date for unban for BGMI
Anyone seeking an unban date are disappointed to learn it is not happening. Krafton as well as any authority hasn’t revealed a date as of at this time. However Krafton, the South Korean company, its official announcement, has said that talks with the authorities in question are continuing, and gamers are advised to keep an eye out for more information and updates on the subject.
The game was first taken off the Google Play Store. Below is the statement by Google concerning the removal of the game from the Play Store:
Google statement: “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.”

To all the BGMI players – don’t get angry and start abusing the government or the makers of the game. It could be a temporary suspension due to some change in terms and condition’s/policies etc. Also to all those who are enjoying this plz think if this was the game you played.

The news came as a shock for newcomers to competitive sports as they determined to build a winning career in the game. Krafton has also invested over 100 million dollars into the Indian Esports industry by organizing high-prize pool tournaments as well as collaborations with major brands. However, the ban may end all of these actions.
In the meantime, until players receive an unban-date from officials and they are able to play other amazing battle royale titles.
The PUBG: New State is an amazing game, and was created by Krafton. It has top-quality graphics as well as an array of innovative and unique gameplay elements.
Users with low-end devices can take a look at Free Fire MAX, which is extremely compatible with a range of devices. The game has decent graphics, as well as a variety of maps and modes to discover and experience.
