Battlegrounds Mobile India by Krafton saw the official return of PUBG Mobile to India, in a slightly tweaked avatar. Ever since its return, there has been considerable anticipation around the game and its possible launch date. On Tuesday, May 18th, Battlegrounds Mobile India went up for pre-registrations, bringing its official launch closer to reality. However, it seems that the actual, commercial launch date of the game isn’t quite set in stone. The source of information comes from Krafton’s official support page embedded in the game’s website, where no clear launch date is specified so far.

In response to one of the four frequently asked questions listed on the forum support page about when might the game actually be launched, Krafton has stated, “We are still in the process of finalising the launch date, we will keep our fans informed on further developments. New updates will be released on our official website and social networks.” This coincides with some reports that claim that Battlegrounds Mobile India may yet be unsure of its launch timeline, and whether it can finally operate in India or not would depend majorly on whether it receives clearance from the central ministry, in time.

Speculations now suggest that Battlegrounds Mobile India will be launched on June 18th, exactly one month after pre-registrations went live. The move would be similar to the format that many other games adopt, giving users a one-month time to sign up for pre-registrations before the game itself is available for direct downloads. As part of pre-registrations, Krafton is offering players who go through the process special rewards such as a recon mask, a recon outfit for both male and female characters, a limited duration ‘celebration expert’ title, and 300 in-game coins.

Battlegrounds Mobile India sparked celebrations in the Indian gamer community, which largely rejoiced the return of the erstwhile PUBG Mobile in the country. While titles such as Call of Duty Mobile and Free Fire kept the competitive gaming, esports and battle royale craze active, the impact of Krafton’s PUBG Mobile was tremendous, and Battlegrounds Mobile India will have its work cut out in order to establish similar credentials.
