The player teams will be absolutely thrilled to once again be a part of this booming Indian gaming community”

Manish Agarwal, Founder & Custodian, IndiGG, “The comeback of BGMI will give the overall Indian gaming industry a shot in the arm. It will encourage gamers and the gaming community including athletes, tournaments, sponsors and streamers to start generating revenue again. The regulatory environment around gaming is constantly evolving and improving which is forming an amazing foundation for growth of gaming in India in this decade”

Bharat Patel, Chairman & Director, Yudiz Solutions Ltd, “The gaming industry will gain further from the re-entry of BGMI. The game has a large following of enthusiasts and will get esports to come back even stronger. With the government sorting out the technical issues and regulatory concerns, the already growing Indian gaming ecosystem and the gaming community will benefit and rise.”
