Here’s what CH Kim, CEO of Krafton, said regarding the BGMI launch in India:

“We at Krafton are delighted to introduce Battlegrounds Mobile India for our fans in India today. Designed exclusively for our Indian fans & gamers, Battlegrounds Mobile India will provide a superlative gaming experience. 

This is just the beginning of a series of new content, collaborations, and esports tournaments coming your way, and we will strive to ensure that our fans and community in India can fully enjoy the battlegrounds experiences.”

If you don’t see the option to update Battlegrounds Mobile India in Google Play Store, it’s suggested for you to wait a few hours as the patch is rolling out slowly for all the Android devices. 

However, there is no official announcement regarding the game’s release for iOS devices, so we’ll have to see when Krafton will make BGMI available on Apple Store.
