BGMI is published in India by South Korean game developer Studio Crafton and is an Indian version of its popular battle royale game, PlayersUnknown Battlegrounds (PUBG), which was banned in 2020 as part of a wider ban on Chinese apps.
Prahar said in the letter that Chinese internet major Tencent has a 15% stake in Crafton, and so it should be no different from the recent ban on another popular game – Free Fire – where Tencent holds an 18% stake.
“In the so-called new avatar, BGMI-PUBG is no different from the predecessor PUBG, with Tencent still controlling it in the background,” said Abhay Mishra, president of Prahar.
