BGMI Could Soon Have ‘Good News’ For Its Fans

Battlegrounds Mobile India players, you may be able to play the game again! The company would change the location of its servers from India-Singapore to India-Malaysia. According to a report from Insidesport, many gamers have started to see specific player IDs not appearing in in-game search results, even though those IDs are visible in the leaderboard. Users see a migration notice stating “The player you are viewing has migrated to Battlegrounds Mobile India.” The data transfer prompt, the report says, is similar to the one displayed during PUBG Mobile-BGMI data transfer.

Notably, BGMI has not released any official statement on this. If the data transfer report is actually true, it means that India’s ban on BGMI may soon be lifted. The report says the news caused the no-ban date to go viral. “All of this speculation accelerated when many fans started facing an ‘account migration’ prompt when searching for specific player IDs in BGMI,” it says.

On July 28, 2022, Alphabet Inc’s Google and Apple removed the Krafton game, citing orders from the Indian government. The government banned gaming in the battle royale format, using a section of the Computer Law it has invoked since 2020 to ban Chinese apps on national security and data-sharing grounds. Under a similar provision of IT laws, the Indian government has banned more than 100 Chinese apps since 2020, including Chinese publisher Tencent Games’ PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG).

BGMI is the Indian version of Tencent’s PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) which is already banned in the country. The Krafton game was relaunched in India as BGMI a year ago to strong demand from gamers. Just like PUBG and BGMI, New State for Indian players, Garena had also launched the Garena Free Fire Max after Garena Free Fire was banned.
