Dimapur, April 6 (EMN): Krafton, the publisher behind Indian battle royale game Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), on Monday announced that it has banned 66,233 accounts for hacking.

The company said that these accounts were permanently banned from the game for using unauthorised third-party apps between March 28 and April 3.

“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,” Krafton wrote in a post on its website.

This is not the first time that Krafton has banned accounts from BGMI permanently. Prior to this, Krafton had banned 22,013 accounts on March 28. In total, Krafton has permanently banned 5,69,420 accounts from BGMI.

Cheating in videogames, especially in a popular game like BGMI, is a big problem for publishers and the community at large. The esports scenario in BGMI was recently rocked with a hacking scandal involving Sagar “Saggy” Kumar from Enigma Gaming.

BGMI pro Saggy was accused of using hacks after a video of him allegedly using iOS Zero hacks went viral on social media. Saggy initially denied the allegations, however, after deep scrutiny by other BGMI pro players, he confirmed all the allegations against him and apologised for his actions.
