Krafton recently came under fire when IGN India found that the BGMI was sharing data with China Mobile Communications Corporation. Following the report, Meenakshi Lekhi, the Chairperson of the Parliamentary Committee on India’s Data Protection Bill and BJP Member of Parliament asked the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) to look into the matter.
Now the developer has shared a statement saying they are aware of the situation and are “working to fully comply with the Indian laws and regulations” as the game’s launch draws near. “KRAFTON, Inc., the creator of BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA and the owner of the blockbuster IP – PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, is working to fully comply with the Indian laws and regulations as we lead up to the official launch of BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA,” the company said.
They added, “KRAFTON is implementing the industry’s toughest standards for data security and is working to overcome any shortcomings throughout the Early Access testing period, for the official launch of BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA.”
Data protection still a top priority
Battlegrounds Mobile India went live for pre-registration on May 18 and is currently available to download for users who signed up for early access.
