UPDATE ON (21:15, 28-07-2022):- Google issues a statement saying, “Upon receipt of the judgment, we contacted the impacted developer and disabled access to the app that remained available on the Play Store in India.”
The Indian version of the world-famous battle royale Mobile game ‘PUBG Mobile, AKA Battlegrounds Mobile India, has been removed from the Google Play Store. All BGMI fans and the Indian gaming community were taken aback by the news. Seeing the game’s enormous popularity across the country.
Why BGMI Removed From Play Store
The cause for the game’s removal is unknown. Despite the fact that, at the time of writing, the game is available for download on the App Store.
BGMI is one of the most popular games ever released for Indian gamers. The game is so popular that its esports championship was shown live on national television. The event drew a large audience, but the game’s removal from the Play Store does not bode well for Indian esports.
Recently, the publishers teamed up with Blackpink, a South Korean K-POP girl group, to deliver exciting events and incentives to the gamers.
Neither Google authorities nor Krafton, the game’s makers, have issued any remarks. The Indian government has provided no information on the BGMI ban.
