After the new season of BGMI, some changes have been made in the ranking, especially Royal Pass. Krafton announced that the season 20 leaderboards will take the form of a cycle. It remains to be seen which teams will be invited and who will qualify.
Krafton is working with partners to build an ecosystem for E-sports in India. Krafton has invested in India’s E-sports sector a significant amount of money, including a $9 million investment in the Loco streaming platform and $22.5 million in India’s leading organizer Godwin Games earlier this year. At the recent title announcement, Krafton promised exclusive tournaments and events for Indian audiences. The company made good on its promise by announcing its first open sports tournament. So far, no India-specific esports event has been launched. It is predicted that by the year 2022, India will reach 370 million mobile gamers, making India one of the largest markets for mobile games.
