Battlegrounds Mobile India to return 

There have been a lot of speculations ever since Krafton announced that the game would be back. Some reports suggested that the earlier ban on the game is being lifted temporarily for three months during which it would be under the watchful eyes of the regulators. After this period, if the game is found to not violate any guidelines, it will be allowed to return permanently.

Some other reports suggested that the game might have to add a timer to restrict players to a certain number of hours per day, while some also reported that the game may remove ‘blood' altogether. 

At the moment, it is not known how true these claims are, but once the game is available to play on May 29, things would be clearer.

BGMI was banned 10 months ago on July 28, 2022 by the government of India. The game has finally received the green light to make a comeback to the Indian mobile gaming scene. The game will be available on both Android and iOS, although iPhone users will have to wait till May 29 to be able to download the game.
