The potential release of BGMI Lite seems like a debatable topic. While the release is quite unlikely due to a lack of official information, many famous BGMI players and influencers have kept up players' hopes.

The demand for a lighter version of BGMI arises because many Indian gamers possess low-end Android devices. The Google Play Store page states that the battle royale title is compatible with a 1.5 GB RAM device.

BGMI classic matches are turning into home of cheaters. Ruining the fun every 2 out of 5 games making it impossible to stream freely and create content around the game. #BGMICheaters #BGMI

PUBG Mobile Lite fans have taken to Twitter to request Krafton for the release of BGMI Lite. They have also asked the developers to ban the hackers before releasing PUBG New State.


Will BGMI Lite be released in India?

The release of BGMI Lite seems unlikely as there is no regional version of PUBG Mobile Lite. There is only one global version of PUBG Mobile’s lighter mode. Moreover, the developers have encouraged players to enjoy BGMI without further information regarding a lighter version.

On the brighter side, many BGMI influencers have taken to social media (Twitter and Instagram) to strengthen the idea that BGMI Lite is on the cards. Popular influencer, Abhijeet “Ghatak” Andhare, has informed players that it will take time for BGMI Lite to release, but it will surely arrive.

Way back in May 2021, Dynamo also commented on the potential release of BGMI Lite (from 32:30 to 33:05). He attributed the player-base in India as a reason for the possible arrival of the game.


Fan reactions

Many fans have requested the release of a lighter version of BGMI. Despite the minimum device requirements mentioned on the Google Play Store page, many mobile gamers have confirmed that BGMI cannot run smoothly on a low-end device.

Since PUBG Mobile Lite was quite popular in India, fans have taken to Twitter to request Krafton to release BGMI Lite. Here are a few examples:
