However recent news have sufficed that the Bangladeshi government is considering banning both the games due to addiction concerns among teenagers.
- Both PUBG Mobile and Free Fire might reportedly be banned in Bangladesh.
- Both games have been immensely popular in the country, with millions of teenagers playing them daily.
- Multiple authorities have come forward recommending the suspension due to “addiction concerns” among teenagers and young adults.
- This move comes just a few days after Free Fire announced dedicated servers for Bangladesh players, which go live on June 8th.
Why It Matters
- While Bangladesh isn’t the first country to ban games like PUBG Mobile, it is the first to ban them under “addiction”-related concerns.
- Previously, India had also banned PUBG Mobile under the grounds of “national security” (the game was developed by China’s Tencent).
- No further news on the ban has been announced as of yet.
