    It’s been months since the leaks and expected launch of BattleGrounds Mobile India (BGMI) Lite first surfaced on the internet. But till now, no official information has come from BGMI developer, the South Korean company, Krafton. However, this has meant that most BGMI fans have had to look at other sources about hints of a possible BGMI Lite release date being revealed. While boosting the hope of BGMI fans, Ocean Sharma, the Indian PUBG Mobile, and VALORANT commentator has tweeted about BGMI Lite launch date. However, he has ended up raising the hype around the launch by actually asking a question, rather affirming any BGMI Lite launch date. His tweet reads, "BGMI lite aa rha hai kya?," the most anticipated question of mobile gamers of India that "Is BGMI Lite coming?"

    After the ban of PUBG Mobile from India, BGMI came as a saviour for PUBG fans. Since its release, Battlegrounds Mobile India has become one of the most popular battle royale games- it is in fact PUBG game in a new avatar. Krafton merely made a few cosmetic changes to PUBG and rolled it out as BGMI after the ban was imposed on China linked PUBG. The audience was attracted by the high-quality display, graphics, and experience, as well as all other features of BGMI. However, due to the spec constraints of most smartphones, a great percentage of enthusiasts are still unable to play BGMI effectively. For that BGMI Lite is required and it has not been launched so far despite vociferous demands being made by fans.

    Hence, since the launch of BGMI India, mobile gamers are expecting the launch of the PUBG Mobile Lite replacement in India too, which will be basically BGMI Lite. It will be a lower specs game that can be played on low-end smartphones.

    When will BGMI Lite be launched?

    Despite the fact that Indian mobile gamers are actively showing interest in the launch of BGMI Lite, its developer Krafton hasn’t made any official announcement regarding the same. Though, In Battlegrounds Mobile India, Krafton has recently released an in-game poll that includes several questions about PUBG Mobile Lite and BGMI Lite. The purpose of the survey was to see if Indian players still prefer a lighter game experience for BGMI. The poll directly asked people if they wanted the lite version of BGMI or not.

    The fact that a survey was carried out may well hint at the launch of BGMI Lite. Unfortunately, due to the absence of official information, BGMI fans have to wait until the official information comes directly from the Krafton on BGMI launch date.
