Battlegrounds Mobile India, which emerged as a replacement to the famed PUBG mobile after it was banned in the country in September last year due to data privacy concerns, is getting a revamp.
Krafton, the South Korean video game development company, revealed the new logo for the game via an Instagram post on their official account. The new logo features an acronym for the mobile game in tricolour, appealing to its Indian audiences which the developers have targetted since its launch in July this year. The logo was subsequently posted on all its social media accounts.
Krafton wrote, “BGMI is an emotion! We thank you for all the love,” expressing their gratefulness towards the users under the post unveiling the new logo for the game.
The new Battlegrounds Mobile India logo is simplistic and is presented in white block letters, with “KRAFTON” written below. It is enclosed in a bold-lined box that consists of the colours saffron and green as an ode to the Indian tri-coloured flag. The acronym BGMI, which saw frequent usage by players in the video game communities has now been adopted for the official logo instead of the game’s full name.
Apart from the logo reveal, Krafton also declared that it has banned around 60,000 accounts for employing illegal practices in the game to gain victory and sabotage, other players. The company announced that it has banned 59,247 between September 10 and September 16 after receiving complaints regarding ‘hackers’ by the game players.
“Battlegrounds Mobile India will strive to implement strong sanctions with the ultimate goal of eradicating the use of illegal programs in order to provide you a pleasant gaming environment,” said Krafton in a statement regarding the implemented ban on illegal accounts.
