PUBG Mobile India or Battlegrounds Mobile India: Krafton reveals a big update


Lakhs of PUBG Mobile India fans in India are waiting eagerly for the launch of Indian version of PUBG Mobile - Battlegrounds Mobile India. But ever since Battlegrounds Mobile India was announced, people were busy looking for similarities with PUBG Mobile.

However, it seems like the company itself has admitted that Battlegrounds Mobile India is similar to or the same as PUBG Mobile. This was done by Krafton CEO CH Kim in a recent statement to the media according to an IGN India report.

"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," Kim said in a statement on the game's website on June 3.

"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," he said.

Krafton was called Bluehole in 2017, but the Battlegrounds IP mentioned by Kim could only refer to the popular battle royale game PUBG, according to the report, which states that it was the only game title launched by the company that year.

Kim's statement that the company was going to build on the same IP seems to suggest that the Battlegrounds Mobile India game could be a copy of the original PUBG mobile game, according to the report.

While this may not be a big deal in the grand scheme of things, it is somewhat significant since this is the closest Krafton has come to admitting that Battlegrounds Mobile India is basically a refashioned PUBG Mobile.

Meanwhile, speculations are rife that Battlegrounds Mobile India developer Krafton would release the game in June but Krafton is yet to make any official announcement in this regard.

It is to be noted that within few weeks since the announcement of Battlegrounds Mobile India has surpassed 20 million pre-registrations on the Google Play Store.
