The BGMI game app was removed from the Google Play Store and App Store on July 28. Since then, people associated with the gaming community have remained hopeful about the return of this game.
BGMI Unban Update: After the ban on the BGMI game, many types of news are coming about its return. There are many fake news going on these days regarding the return of BGMI. Let us tell you that BGMI has been one of the most popular game apps in the Indian gaming market. The BGMI game app was removed from the Google Play Store and App Store on July 28. Since then, people associated with the gaming community have been keeping hope about the return of this game and are also posting positive statements in this regard. Well, the recent report on account migration looks promising.
Account Migration Message
There are several reports surfacing on the Internet where specific IDs are not showing up in game search results. Although some of these are listed on the Ranking States page, they see a migration notice when they open their ID. The migration notice reads: ‘The player you are viewing has migrated to Battlegrounds Mobile India.’ Crafton can transfer players’ data to new servers, as the current servers are charged with communicating with Chinese servers.
Surprisingly, this time also the migration prompt looks the same as during the PUBG Mobile-BGMI data transfer. Let us tell you that in the year 2021, Crafton gave ex-PUBG Mobile users in India the opportunity to transfer their account from the actual game to the new one. It could also mean that Crafton will introduce a new BGMI app to bring the game back to the virtual storefront.
After the data transfer is complete, players will not be able to search the shifted account in PUBG Mobile. Some accounts have started displaying similar notifications in BGMI. But at the moment it is too early to speculate about the data transfer and link it to the old phenomenon of PUBG Mobile. It could also be a glitch, as there are internal server issues following the recent ban and Crafton is pushing for minor updates to run the game. Although the game is working fine except for the UC purchase option.
BGMI return expectations
War Mania founder and CEO Hrishav Bhattacharjee said that there have been several private meetings between the government and Crafton regarding the BGMI ban. It also discussed the concerns of data privacy. Players can expect the game to return in mid-October or early November.
Starwalr Esports co-founder Towqeer Gilkar has said that he has attended some meetings with the game’s developers, where the game ban was discussed. He said the meeting was concluded on a positive note. BGMI is more likely to return and he is up to 95 percent sure about it. Meanwhile, Rushindra Sinha, CEO of Global e-Sports (one of the popular BGMI e-sports teams), has hinted at a possible unban of BGMI via Inside Source in his latest video.
BGMI was banned by the government due to security concerns, as the game has been exposed to Chinese servers and communicating with Indian user data. If the data migration notice is correct, there could be a new BGMI app from Crafton, which released a new app after PUBG Mobile was banned. If the game gets a green signal from the government, then we can expect some changes in the gameplay and mechanics.
