Whatever kind of final product is released, as far as gamers in India are concerned, then surely, Battlegrounds Mobile India will end up being one of the most highly anticipated multiplayer mobile games of 2021. The hype building up to the release of the game that is the successor to PUBG Mobile India later this month has indeed skyrocketed.

Although it is virtually certain that Battlegrounds Mobile India will launch in the very near future, Krafton, the company behind the game’s India launch, has kept the hype up by dropping hints and teasers. The other things that have added to the excitement surrounding Battlegrounds Mobile India are the calls by lawmakers to ban the game or take more action against it.

Now, a new leak has revealed that the Battlegrounds Mobile India launch trailer could arrive as soon as this week! It has revealed that the company is likely to publish a teaser trailer this week. PUBG Mobile India was banned some 9 months ago in the country.

A report by Sportskeeda suggests that the South Korea-based company Krafton, which is publishing the game in the country is likely to drop a new Battlegrounds Mobile India trailer for the game on Thursday, ahead of the rumoured launch date of the game. We had previously reported that the pre-registrations for the game which opened last month crossed the 20 million mark within two weeks.

According to the report, a clip posted to Instagram by Akash Jumde, who is currently a visual content designer with the game publisher for its Battlegrounds Mobile India franchise in India, points to a June 17 trailer release date. The clip reportedly posted by Jumde also includes the text, “Audio Clip Mixer 17th June-Date reveal Video-Crate in Sky”, according to the report. However, it also states that the post’s authenticity is yet to be confirmed.

Meanwhile, a new Battlegrounds Mobile India teaser was published on the Facebook page yesterday stating: "The Battlegrounds is going to be filled with so many exciting moments and much more. The time is getting closer than you think!" and while an older post asked users to guess the release date in the comments.

We have previously reported that Battlegrounds Mobile India is likely to launch in the third week of June, based on older leaks and reports. According to tipster Sagar Thakur (also known as Maxtern) the Battlegrounds Mobile India game could launch on June 18. The game is expected to launch with the same game modes as the original PUBG Mobile game, which should include the popular battle royale mode, the team deathmatch mode, and much more. However, unlike the original game, it looks like Battlegrounds Mobile India will have strict restrictions in place for minor gamers, as we have previously reported.

Krafton had previously teased the arrival of a Sanhok-like map on its social media profiles. This was followed by another post that suggested Battlegrounds Mobile India could also feature another map from PUBG Mobile, Erangel. Most recently, the company thanked its fans for their support, and asked them if they were “missing their chicken dinner”, a reference to the popular catchphrase “winner winner chicken dinner” in the original game.
