Sid Joshi and K18 discuss about BGMI return in recent vlog

S8ul Esports to announce New State Mobile lineup soon

BGMI return has been a very hot topic of discussion in the past few weeks as there have been various rumors of the return surfacing on the internet. K18 and Sid Joshi from S8UL addressed the same in Ketan’s recent vlog and here is their take on this situation.

BGMI was banned in India by the July end by the Indian government over concerns of violating user privacy and having links with China in some form. Since then, the community has been searching for new information around the ban.

This ban has impacted the distribution network of BGMI as the game is still active on its older version but newer content cannot be added and its official marketplace listing on Apple and Google Play Store have been removed as well.


A lot of people have been asking their favourite content creators about the game and K18 and Sid have answered few of the queries. Talking about the rumors of BGMI return is right around the corner, they stated that they will refrain from commenting on the topic till the news is actually announced.

Referring to a similar scenario that happened with PUBG Mobile ban, they explained that the entire community believed that the game will be unbanned by the end of 2020 but it took almost an year for the game to come back.

While talking about the condition of BGMI return as to whether the game will return as-is or will have some changes, they suggested that there could be some changes to the game as Krafton has already launched it twice and still received a ban.

Sid has stated that they are not depending on the game’s comeback in “all aspects”, implying that the organization is already taking moves to diversify their portfolio for the long run.
