With the release of a new logo today, Krafton has officially adopted BGMI as an acronym for Battlegrounds Mobile India.
Battlegrounds Mobile India was published in July as a replacement for PUBG Mobile, which was banned in the nation because of data privacy concerns in September 2020. Krafton announced shortly after the ban that it would be taking up the game’s publishing in India and published BGMI. While the game is nearly identical to PUBG Mobile, there are a few modifications, like green blood and a warning notice before matches encouraging players to take “frequent rests.”
The origin of the term BGMI is unknown, but it was quickly adopted by the public when the game was released in June. This isn’t surprising given that the community has come to associate the battle royale game with a four-letter term.
Krafton claimed in today’s logo release that it was listening to what the players wanted because of the widespread use. The new logo includes the letters BGMI with the word Krafton underneath it. The 1.6.0 update for BGMI recently arrived, bringing with it a slew of new features. The Flora Menace mode, as well as other configuration improvements and the addition of a route option to the map, are all included.
