Battlegrounds Mobile India is getting closer to launch and developer Krafton says, “It’s almost time.” Although an exact release date has not yet been announced, fans are eagerly awaiting to get back on the battlefield and play with their friends. Previous reports have suggested the game will be released in India on June 18, but it could arrive earlier. Battlegrounds Mobile India is the Indian version of PUBG Mobile, which was banned in the country in September 2020 along with 117 other apps.
Krafton announced on Twitter through his official Battlegrounds Mobile India account that the game is almost there. “It’s almost time. Time to rebuild memories, play with your friends and celebrate over a chicken dinner!” The tweet reads. However, no release date was announced. It is widely believed that Battlegrounds Mobile India will be on June 18th is released exactly one month after being preregistered on the Google Play Store. It seems like a valid timeline, but given the latest tweet, it could be earlier.
Battlegrounds Mobile India was announced in the first week of May and since then Krafton has been teasing the game without giving a release date. One report said the developer was working to set a release date. There has been a lot of teasing over the past month including two cards – Erangel and a smaller 4×4 card, Sanhok. Battlegrounds Mobile India will also bring the UAZ Jeep and Level 3 Backpack, which PUBG Mobile fans are quite familiar with.
The game recently exceeded 20 million pre-registrations and that’s only on Android, as iOS availability is still a mystery. The developers are also working on this.
There have been some management changes since PUBG Mobile was banned in India as Krafton took over the game and then optimized it specifically for the Indian audience. At the time of the announcement, the developer announced that Battlegrounds Mobile India will offer exclusive in-game events such as outfits and features. It will also debut with its own esports ecosystem that will include tournaments and leagues.
