Recently, Naman 'Mortal' Mathur, Abhijeet 'Ghatak' Andhare, and Sagar 'Maxtern' Thakur teased the possible release date for Battlegrounds Mobile India. Mortal posted a tweet with the number '12345' and said it contains a date, Ghatak claimed that Battlegrounds Mobile India is releasing in the third week of June, and Maxtern posted a binary string in his tweet.
These tweets seem to point at a very specific number. If we decipher them, 1000100111001101011000101 converted into decimal gives us 18062021 and ((1+2)x3)+4+5 equals 18. What we can conclude from this is that Battlegrounds Mobile India might release on June 18, exactly one month after going live for pre-registration on the Google Play Store. June 18 also comes in the third week of June which is in line with Ghatak's tweet.

Earlier this week, IGN rolled out a report claiming June 18 as the release date. They said, "sources in the industry speaking to IGN India on condition of anonymity claim that the Battlegrounds Mobile India release date is June 18."
Battlegrounds Mobile India was announced earlier this month and since then fans have been waiting for an official word on its release date. According to the support page of the game's official website, Krafton is "still in the process of finalizing the launch date" and they will "keep fans informed on further developments." After all these teases, the possibility of BGMI releasing on June 18, 2021, is very high.
Even so, there are some dark clouds looming over Battlegrounds Mobile India. A couple of days ago, Arunachal Pradesh MLA Ninong Ering wrote a letter to Prime Minister Modi requesting him to ban the game. In his letter, he said that the launch of Battlegrounds Mobile India is a "mere illusion and a trick to relaunch the same game with minor modifications and collect user data of millions of our citizens, including our children and transfer it to foreign companies and the Chinese government."
