, Bandar Lampung – The founder or CEO of Global Esports expressed doubts about a return Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI). Sinha as the founder claims that if the game is going to come back, it has come back.
According to Sinha too, Krafton’s 1 Crore INR investment in SPS New State Mobile Open India should have been telling enough. Apart from that, Sinha stated that this was purely misleading and detrimental to the ecosystem for everyone to wait for the game to arrive.

Global Esports CEO Can’t Believe BGMI Will Come Back
Due to national security concerns, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) banned PUBG Mobile under section 69A of the TI Act 2000 in September 2020 in the country, India.
The ministry stated that PUBG Mobile harmed India’s sovereignty, integrity, defense and public order. With no hope of PUBG Mobile returning, Krafton introduced a variant of the Indian game entitled BGMI.
The game quickly filled the void left by PUBG Mobile in the Indian gaming audience, with its absence from July 2021. Unfortunately, the Indian government went ahead and suspended BGMI too under the same law one year after its launch in July 2022.
Their opinion about the issue of the return of PUBG Mobile India
In a recent Twitter, Sinha highlighted that PUBG Mobile was available for 30 months and had been banned for over 29 months. On the other hand, BGMI is available for 12 months and has been suspended for six months.
Sinha also added that he believes the BGMI will not return, and the silence from publishers and the government is clear evidence of this. In addition, Krafton’s investment in the development of the New State Mobile esports scene in the country is another testament to this.
Sinha explained that anticipating the game’s return is purely misleading and detrimental to the ecosystem. Sinha also added that this is the worst business model for esports organizations to depend on just one game.
Over the past few months, well-known Indian gaming personalities, including professional BGMI player Saumya Raj “Saumraj” and Orangutan Gaming owner Yash Bhanushali, have been claiming that the game will return in early 2023.
Finally, Sinha also revealed that he was really looking forward to the game’s return. He stated that he has been paying the salaries of professional BGMI players of Global Esports since the game was banned and will continue to happen.
