However, there is still no official announcement on the date of release.

In an exclusive comment to Sportskeeda, famous PUBG Mobile caster Ocean Sharma, better known by his game name Gamingpro Ocean, clarified numerous queries, including its size.

In his video titled, “BGMI - WHAT’S NEXT??? (competitive, road map, much more),” Sharma stated that,

"BGMI’s size may vary from 660 MB to 750 MB. After that, with the download of the resource packs, it would further increase."


Players can expect the final game size to be around 1.5 - 2 GB.

Battlegrounds Mobile India seems to have learned a few lessons from its previous venture that got banned. A look at the game's new privacy policy reveals new restrictions in place for under 18 players.

Under 18 players will have to provide the contact number of their parents or guardians to confirm appropriate consent. Moreover, minors cannot play Battlegrounds Mobile India for more than three hours a day. Their in-app purchases will be limited to ₹7,000 daily.

The upcoming version of the game doesn’t feature any major overhauls in terms of gameplay. Hence, players can expect similar gameplay and maps like PUBG Mobile.
