BGMI Main Version likely to release Next Week for everyone including iOS users; says Kronten: While Battlegrounds Mobile India Early Access is open to all now, there is little to no information available about the public version of the game. The beta version that has already crossed 5 Million downloads, has the community hooked with the new PUBG Mobile experience. BGMI has lessened the in-game violence and mature content that PUBG Mobile had & implemented new rules of conduct for players. However, without the public version available, a lot of players including iOS users have been barred from experiencing the Indian version of the game.
As a result of this, a lot of players from the community have been asking for the public version of the game that is truly open to all. Everybody had expected that the public version will become available from 18th June as many prominent content creators from the community were teasing this date as a possible official release date. With no word from Krafton about this delay, players, especially iOS users, have started worrying about their access to Battlegrounds Mobile India.
Previously, professional PUBG Mobile Esports player, ScoutOP shared that BGMI is going through some fixes to allow Indian users to matchmake with players on the Global Server. Now, Kronten, a professional steamer & content creator revealed on his livestream that the issues have been fixed & we may see an official nationwide launch as early as next week.
On his livestream, Kronten told his audience “The game is likely to come within a week. The last time I spoke with them (Officials), they seemed to have sorted out all the issues. Now, they just need to come up with a proper release date & time that’s best for everyone. Afterall, you cannot continue with a beta version for so long.”
Global Matchmaking & future of BGMI Esports at stake?
The Korean version of PUBG Mobile allowed players to matchmake with players who are using the global version of the game. This feature helped many users during the ban of PUBG Mobile’s Global Version in India as players used to play the game in the Korean version instead that was still accessible. However, due to data security concerns, this feature is not available in BGMI as of now & BGMI users can’t play with players from any other version of the game.
According to Scout & many other experts, This is a potential threat to the growth of BGMI’s growth in Esports as regional winners won’t be able to participate in International tournaments which are usually played in the global version. To fix this issue, the developers are delaying the release of Battlegrounds Mobile India as they also wish to return PUBG Mobile Esports to its former glory.
Regarding the BGMI iOS Version release, Scout shared that “iOS version will come as soon as the public server goes live.”
