It has been close to two weeks since Battlegrounds Mobile India was launched in the country for Android users. The lead-up to the game met with a lot of hype and excitement considering the popularity of PUBG Mobile never really dimmed despite its ban in India last year. On Monday, Krafton had some numbers to share with everyone. Battlegrounds Mobile India aka BGMI has managed to rake in 34 million registered users already, with 16 million daily active users. This is an impressive feat and it shows that PUBG Mobile fans never really left despite the game’s ban in India.
Krafton also revealed that the battle royale game saw 2.4 million peak concurrent players at some point after the launch. “We are grateful for the tremendous love and support showed by the community! We, at Krafton will continue to bring the ultimate battle royale experience for all of you! Stay tuned for exciting updates!” the company said in its post. Notably, the numbers exclude iPhone users as Battlegrounds Mobile India iOS version is yet to be launched. There is no word yet on when the iOS version will launch.
Recently, the company announced the Battlegrounds Mobile India July update features that will be coming later this month. The game will soon get new guns, Ignition mode, 90fps for more devices, gravity vehicles, and more. There is no word yet on when the update will be released but it looks like you can expect some exciting new additions to the game soon.
Krafton recently also held the game’s first esports tournament, called Launch Party. The tournament saw a total of eighteen captains and their teams battle it out for a hefty price pool of Rs 6 lakh.
