Krafton Announces New Schedule for Battlegrounds Mobile India Series 2021
BGIS 2021 is back on track.
The Battlegrounds Mobile India Series 2021 (BGIS) which was announced on 15th July earlier this year, underwent some major delays but is about to resume once again. Krafton came forward yesterday on 23rd November to highlight that the registrations for the tournament, which are still ongoing, will be concluding on Sunday, 28th November 2021.
Finally, after more than four months the registration for the tournament will come to an end, as the BGIS 2021 proceeds with the actual competition. The first stage of the tournament is scheduled to start from 4th December, coming to an end on 16th January 2022 with the grand finals.
The complete schedule of the BGIS 2021 has been provided below along with the original schedule of the tournament, as per which the BGIS 2021 champion would have already been crowned on 10th October.
BGIS 2021 Updated New Schedule: Complete Information
Originally, BGIS 2021 registrations were planned to take place from 19th July to 2nd August followed by the tournament all set to be played between 2nd August to 10th October 2021. However, by the end of July Krafton had decided to extend the registration deadline so players would have more time to squad up and register their team.
Though the registration dates were extended, no new date or schedule was provided by Krafton at that point in time. The competition dates were moved without any news of when the event would be taking place. There were not even any reasons provided for shifting the entire tournament by more than two months.
So it was quite a surprise when Krafton out of the blue announced the final registration date as 28th November, followed by the entire schedule for BGIS 2021 which is as follows,
This is the new schedule of the BGIS 2021 tournament, running from 4th December 2021 all the way up to 16th January 2022, when the first-ever Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) champion shall be crowned.
Information about the various stages of the tournament is as follows:
