BGMI RETURNING IN Q2 of 2023 SAYS SAMSUNG SECURITIES REPORT

BATTLEGROUND MOBILE INDIA, one of the most popular game in INDIA was banned in the First week of July 2022.Since then the whole Indian Gaming Community is eagerly waiting for its comeback.

BGMI might Return in Q2 2023, Says Krafton as Per Samsung Securities Report

According to a recent report published by Samsung Securities on South Korean game publisher Krafton, the re-release of Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) is imminent. Samsung Securities anticipates the game’s service will resume in Q2 of 2023 (April 1 – June 30) and that the company is refraining from marketing the game’s early stages return to avoid provoking the Indian government.

The report was a company update written by a senior analyst at Samsung Securities focused on the “Internet Game” sector.

From the report:

“PUBG Mobile India expected to resume in Q2: The company expects PUBG Mobile’s India (BGMI) service, which was suspended in July 2022, to resume from Q2. BGMI recorded sales of around KRW 30 billion in the quarter before the service was discontinued, so when the game resumes, it is expected to contribute to a rebound in mobile sales. However, as the company is refraining from marketing in the early stages to avoid provoking the Indian government, sales are expected to gradually normalize,” reads the relevant portion of the report.

Samsung Securities is a financial services company and a subsidiary of South Korean technology company Samsung Group—it is also one of the biggest securities firms in the country. In January, Samsung Securitieshad cut Krafton’s stock to a “neutral” rating based on a bearish earnings outlook.

In March, News18 reported that the popular battle royale title might return “very soon” to “e-stores” (likely a reference to Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store). According to News18, the ban would be lifted for a limited time of three months, with certain changes made to the original version of the game. 

Additionally, the report suggested that the game would have play time restrictions and would not include blood—meaning that the color would be changed. Apart from these gameplay changes, the government also reportedly asked Krafton “to introduce relevant changes in the game, including the server” due to potential cases of addiction and associated incidents of violence and self-harm among players that have made headlines in Indian mainstream media.

Moreover, The report also disclosed that the game had earned a significant revenue of 183 Crores before its suspension, indicating its immense popularity.

Furthermore, the report suggests that the game’s relaunch will not involve any initial promotional activities to avoid triggering any negative reactions from the Indian government.

INDIAN GOVERNMENT BANNED 'DEAD BY DAYLIGHT MOBILE'

INDIAN GOVERNMENT BANNED ‘DEAD BY DAYLIGHT MOBILE’

In a startling turn of events, Dead by Daylight Mobile has been banned in India by the country’s government. On March 15, Behaviour Interactive and NetEase launched an enhanced version of the game globally for Android and iOS smartphones. The news regarding the game’s removal from both mobile platforms was revealed by the official Twitter account of Dead by Daylight Mobile. The company stated:

“To stay in line with the interim order from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology in India, we will be removing Dead by Daylight Mobile from the Storefronts. Once it is removed, players in India will no longer be able to access and play Dead by Daylight Mobile.”

The Indian government has banned several games and hundreds of Chinese apps previously over concerns about data security and privacy. Tencent, NetEase, and Alibaba, among other tech companies, had apps banned. Dead by Daylight Mobile may have been banned due to similar reasons, although it is not clear whether any in-game data from the game was transferred to servers in China.

The Indian government has not issued an official statement about the Dead by Daylight Mobile ban. Behaviour Interactive has not revealed any plans about bringing the game back to India. The developer has said that they will update fans as soon as possible about the status of the game in India.

In conclusion, the removal of Dead by Daylight Mobile from storefronts in India is due to an interim order issued by the MeitY. The ban is thought to be related to data security and privacy concerns similar to those that led to the ban of other games like Free Fire and BGMI/PUBG Mobile. While those who already have the game downloaded may still be able to play, they will not receive automatic updates from Google Play Store and App Store. The Indian government has not yet issued an official statement about the ban, and Behaviour Interactive has not disclosed any plans to bring the game back to India.

VALORANT's Features in CS:GO

CS Go 2 has introduced a new feature inspired by Valorant, which is a circle around a player’s icon on the minimap. It is believed that this circle represents the audio range of the player’s footsteps, as it disappears when the player moves or jumps silently. This feature is designed to provide players with a better understanding of their surroundings and their potential exposure to enemy players. Overall, this new addition is aimed at enhancing the gaming experience of CS Go 2 players.

Kill Indicator in HUD

The new feature in CS2, which introduces a stack of cards that appear in the middle of the HUD and increase by one for each kill made in the round, is different from previous versions of the game. This feature is not exactly taken from Valorant but it is inspired to an extent.

This feature provides players with a visual representation of their performance, allowing them to track their progress throughout the round. Additionally, earning an “ace” at five kills provides players with a sense of achievement and recognition, which was not present in previous versions of the game. Overall, this new feature enhances the gameplay experience for players and sets CS2 apart from previous versions.
