Sean Hyunil Sohn, the CEO of Krafton Inc India, expressed his excitement in announcing the preload for existing users. He stated that their team is continuously working on improving BGMI’s in-game mechanics. Sohn also extended his gratitude to the Indian authorities and the community for their unwavering support, promising an enhanced gaming experience for everyone.
