  • Battlegrounds Mobile India release date may have been revealed by Krafton.
  • Krafton has shared a new poster that hints at the June 18th launch.
  • Battlegrounds Mobile India is a rebadged PUBG Mobile for India.

PUBG Mobile India version, Battlegrounds Mobile India, is coming soon. Krafton recently said that it's almost time for the chicken dinner to return to your plates. Now, in a fresh teaser, Krafton, the company that owns the PUBG and Battlegrounds Mobile IP rights, may have revealed the launch date for Battlegrounds Mobile India. The teaser shows the iconic PUBG pan gift-wrapped to mark the occasion of release and just next to it is an XY map that loosely hints that the Battlegrounds Mobile India release is happening on June 18.

It has been quite some time since we have heard about the release date of Battlegrounds Mobile India. Some very initial versions of rumours hinted at the June 10 launch, which clearly did not happen. And then, a large part of the gaming content creator community, as well as industry insiders, unanimously said Krafton will launch the Battlegrounds Mobile India game on June 18. YouTubers such as Ghatak, Maxtern, and Ocean -- all of them popular among the PUBG Mobile gaming community -- have hinted at the same date.

The poster that Krafton shared does not explicitly mention any date, but it is the fans who took the responsibility of deciphering the map with XY coordinates lying next to the PUBG pan. On one axis, you have 5, 4, 3 numbers, while on the other axis, you have 3, 2, 1. If you add 5, 4, 3, 3, 2, and 1, you get the number 18. And there is also a hint at the sixth month, which is June. So what you ultimately get is June 18, which is unsurprisingly the date everyone is talking about for the launch of Battlegrounds Mobile India.

Right now, these are just projections based on what insiders have said and now what Krafton is teasing through the new poster. June 18 also makes sense because it is exactly one month from May 18, the day when the pre-registration for Battlegrounds Mobile India opened. The pre-registration process is still open, where anyone who pre-registers for the game is eligible for four rewards in the game. The user gets a Recon Outfit, a Recon Mask, 300 AG, and the limited title of Celebration Expert.

It is good news for gamers in India who have been awaiting the comeback of PUBG Mobile after last year's ban. And even though the name has been changed to avoid comparisons, Battlegrounds Mobile India may already be getting undue attention from Indian politicians. As many as three politicians have advocated for a ban on Battlegrounds Mobile India ahead of its release, but nothing has come through as a result so far. It will be only a matter of time till we see if Krafton successfully launches Battlegrounds Mobile India.
