The game has reportedly been removed from app stores as a result of the BGMI ban in India.

  • BGMI has been removed from Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
  • Google cites a government order for delisting BGMI from its app store.
  • We will find out the reason(s) for banning BGMI.

The sudden news of the BGMI ban caught us off guard on Thursday, July 28 in the evening. The Apple App Store and Google Play immediately deleted Battlegrounds Mobile India. Further investigation revealed that this was carried out at the Indian government’s request. There are few specifics, and the government has not yet issued an official statement. However, this is what we currently know.


Just over a year has passed when Krafton resurrected PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) under the new name Battlegrounds Mobile Inda (BGMI). The game just celebrated its one anniversary with a unique login event. The game had 45000 people banned for cheating when we last reported on it. Sadly, we now have this disappointing news for the game’s fans after a few weeks: the game has been removed from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

This is what Google said to Techcrunch about the BGMI removal from Play Store:

Following established procedure, we contacted the impacted developer upon receipt of the order and disabled access to the software that was still available on the Play Store in India.

Meanwhile, Apple is yet to comment.

As for Krafton, the maker of the game, it is currently determining and “clarifying” the cause of this. For the time being, those who have the game installed may play it without issue. It appears that the game servers are not down. We will keep you updated as this is a developing story.
