A poll was put up on the official Discord server of Battlegrounds Mobile India, where players were asked as to why they wanted BGMI Lite to be released.

@BGMILOVER We need BGMI LITE version

Krafton has finally sent these battle royale gamers into a tizzy by asking why they want BGMI Lite. Players have the following options to choose from:

  • I can’t play BGMI on my low-end device.
  • I can play BGMI, but I’ll have better frame rates and performance in LITE version on my device.
  • I spent money in LITE version and want to transfer my data/inventory.
  • I like the maps and Skins in Lite version.

Mobile gamers have only one day to cast their votes and they can only choose one option from the above.

To #KraftonPreviously we had Pubg Mobile lite as more then 70% gamers have low end devices & more then 500k YT channels with 5M+ videos of Pubg Mobile Lite.We would love to have "Battlegrounds Mobile India Lite version" hope Krafton look into this.#WeWantBGMILite@Anuj_Tandon https://t.co/0JLkFawuiX

Even if this is just a poll that the developers have put up for preliminary market research, it is a step in the right direction when it comes to the development of BGMI Lite. Various BGMI influencers have also given hope to players regarding the potential release of BGMI Lite.
