Krafton issued a statement on its official social media handles, in response to public worries over the Battlegrounds Mobile India data transfer to China. However, within a few minutes, the post was removed from all sites.
According to recent claims, data from Battlegrounds Mobile India was most likely being transmitted to servers in China. This has caused an uproar in the Indian community, with many fearing that the game might be banned as a result of these difficulties.
IGN reported earlier today that Krafton appeared to have rectified the flaw and that a server ping test revealed no additional user data relay to Chinese data servers. Some of these servers were discovered to be held by Tencent-run Proxima Beta in Hong Kong and China Mobile Communications in Beijing. Krafton has now made a statement acknowledging it.
The update comes only days after CAIT petitioned the Indian government to prohibit BGMI in India, claiming that the game was a clone of PUBG Mobile, which was banned last year due to security and privacy concerns. Battlegrounds Mobile India is presently accessible as an open beta to everyone, with a stable version likely to be released in the next weeks.
Thus, data shared to third parties are ONLY to enable certain game features. In the meantime, KRAFTON will continue to closely monitor and protect any data being transferred to unexpected and restricted IP addresses prior to the official launch.Krafton spokesperson
BGMI is still in beta, and users must sign up as beta testers and pre-register for the game before they can download it. The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) recently submitted a letter to the Minister of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), claiming that the battle royale game poses a threat to Indian security.
While we have remarked that the game is a competent return for Krafton to India, it remains to be seen whether the new Chinese data fiasco would give Krafton any regulatory problems in India.
