Krafton's upcoming mobile battle royale Battlegrounds Mobile India has received 20 million pre-registrations in just two weeks, the company announced earlier today. The game went live for pre-registration for Android on the Google Play Store on May 18. It received 7.6 million pre-registrations on the first day. 

Speaking on the tremendous response by Indian fans, CH Kim, CEO of KRAFTON, Inc. said “We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our Indian fans for their overwhelming response to the BATTLEGROUNDS IP, first developed by me and my team in 2017. The BATTLEGROUNDS IP received love and acclaim from players worldwide, and KRAFTON will continue to build on the IP. That effort includes bringing amazing content to BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA, and providing an incomparable battle royale experience to our players”.

As for BGMI's release date, Krafton says it will be announced at a later date. But there are reports that suggest the game will release on June 18, exactly one month after going live for pre-registration.

Currently, the game is available only for Android devices but an iOS version may not be far behind. For now, Krafton will be focused on ensuring a smooth release for Battlegrounds Mobile India. The game hasn't even launched yet and there are already calls to get it banned

A lot to look forward to

BGMI is a free-to-play battle royale title that will be available to play only in India. As PUBG Mobile is banned in the country, Krafton has developed BGMI with different features than PUBG Mobile like instead of red, BGMI will have green bloodstains. The privacy policy has also been updated in BGMI. The game will include unique outfits, its own esports ecosystem, and more. The developer is also offering exclusive outfits as a reward for pre-registering.
