Skyesports founder and CEO Shiva Nandy released a statement on the matter. As reported by Sportskeeda, Nandy took to Instagram to share his thoughts and claim that BGMI has not yet been banned and that it is just an interim order from the government. Nandy said: “It was not an immediate action. It was in the process for nearly five months. In fact, a week before the game was removed from the Play Store, a government interim notice was sent to Krafton’s headquarters. Two days before the game was pulled from the store, we got a hint and that’s why most of the advance amount due for the Skyesports League, LAN Delhi stopped.”
Nandy also said BGMI could be back soon as the previously banned TikTok is set to make a comeback in India, according to his sources. He said: “According to sources, Tik Tok is all set to make a comeback. In that case, BGMI is 100% back. Hopefully, if all goes well, there will be independence soon! Again, it’s not a ban. Interim order. ”
It should be noted that neither Krafton nor the government has confirmed any of these statements. It’s unclear if BGMI will return to India, and even if it does, it could take a very long time. Krafton has apparently presented his case to the government to bring BGMI back as soon as possible.
