Following the ban of PUBG Mobile in September 2022, Krafton introduced BGMI (Battlegrounds Mobile India) in 2021 and within a year of its debut, the game has achieved enormous heights. The title has surpassed other games in the Indian gaming market to become the most popular BR title and even became the base for the growth of esports.
In a turn of events, GOI issued orders to Google Play Store and App Store to remove BGMI from their storefronts on 28 July. Later it was found that the game was banned as the app was found to be responsible for user data privacy breaches. It’s been more than three months after the removal, and various reports about the game’s comeback have circulated online. Instead of returning, no fresh updates to the title have been released, leaving users unhappy.
When Will BGMI 2.3 Update be Released?
As PUBG Mobile is approaching the 2.3 update this month, BGMI fans in India are also looking for answers on whether it would arrive or not. It is to be noted that the 2.2 major update (due in mid-September) was barred from being released in Battlegrounds Mobile India despite its counterpart, PUBGM receiving it. The situation might be repeated again as the upcoming 2.3 update might not be introduced for the Indian version.
The game has been running with the 2.1 update which was the update that is present during its removal from the virtual storefronts. Since its removal, no new updates, especially the major patch updates have hit the game. The Indian version has not received the major 2.2 update as well as the latest Royale Pass, hence the chances of the 2.3 update being launched in BGMI are looking very slim.
PUBG Mobile 2.3 update beta variant has taken place in the last month, however, there is no such thing introduced in BGMI, implying that the update may not be available in the Indian variant.
However, Krafton is yet to confirm the availability of the BGMI 2.3 update. Hence, any information that you find on the Internet or any Youtube video concerning the update’s release date can be deemed untrustworthy and unauthentic. Several APK and OBB links of Battlegrounds Mobile India 2.2 Update have been found on the Internet which is completely false and unreal. You may also find the same for the upcoming 2.3 update and we suggest you stay away from them.
It remains to be seen whether Krafton can pull back the game online to the virtual storefronts by resolving issues with the concerned authorities. If the game gets unbanned and gets re-released in the Play store and app store, we can expect that BGMI could receive its regular updates as well as the 2.3 update. Till then, fans may continue to enjoy the game’s present features because there will be no new additions in the foreseeable future.
