After being removed from Apple’s App Store and Google Play Store in India on February 12, Free Fire was reportedly banned along with 53 other apps by the Indian government. .
According to a list of 54 programs released by local media ET NOW Free Fire is blocked with more games like Onmyoji Arena, Onmyoji Chess, Rise of Kingdoms: Lost Crusade and more.
The Indian government has banned the application because it poses a “threat to national security,” ANI, one of the country’s leading news agencies, said in a report. The report also said that the banned program originated in China.
However, Free Fire was developed by Singapore-based Garena. Its parent company, Sea Limited, is also based in Southeast Asia and is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
