PUBG Mobile Free Fire Bangladesh Ban

PUBG Mobile and Free Fire might be banned in Bangladesh soon.

PUBG Mobile and Free Fire have quickly become the top 2 battle royale games in the world.

However recent news have sufficed that the Bangladeshi government is considering banning both the games due to addiction concerns among teenagers.

Key Highlights

  • 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.
