Players accessing the game are receiving a message from Krafton regarding the server status. The message ensures players that their accounts will be safe and their progress will be retained during the upgrade.

Krafton plans to collaborate with local developers and promote the use of advanced technologies. The company also acknowledges the importance of providing skill development and employment opportunities for talented individuals in India, allowing them to enhance their skills and thrive in the gaming industry.
It has been confirmed that BGMI will be temporarily unbanned in India for a period of 90 days or 3 months. During this time, the app and gaming experience will be closely examined by Indian authorities. Krafton, the company behind BGMI, has agreed to comply with the regulations established by local authorities, which focus on ensuring privacy and security in accordance with the country’s laws. If there are any violations or shortcomings, BGMI may face another ban.
Vibhor Kukreti, the Head of Government Affairs at Krafton India, mentioned that the company strictly follows the law and has implemented various measures to ensure compliance with all relevant regulations. Kukreti emphasized the importance of user well-being and encouraged players to prioritize their own health and practice responsible gaming.
We are committed to providing a safe and enjoyable experience for our players and believe that by promoting responsible gaming, we can contribute to a healthier gaming culture, where players can enjoy themselves while still taking care of their overall well-being,Kukreti said.
Krafton is preparing to make certain modifications to the game before relaunching it in India. One of the changes involves introducing an in-game timer that will help players keep track of their gaming sessions. Additionally, it is anticipated that the game will no longer display blood or have it default to a different color instead of red. Previously, players had the option to change the blood color to green or blue.
Krafton is expected to announce the release date of BGMI in India in the near future.
