South Korean video game developer Krafton thanked the Indian gaming enthusiasts for a sublime response to Battlegrounds Mobile India since opening up pre-registrations in India.
Developed by Krafton, the pre-registration for the game went live on Google Play Store for fans in India on May 18. It received 76 lakh pre-registrations on its opening day, crossing 2 crore pre-registrations in two weeks.
The game is seen as a replacement for PUBG Mobile in India which was banned by the government.
Speaking on the response by Indian fans, CH Kim, CEO at 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.”
The release date for Battlegrounds Mobile India will be announced at a later date.
