Garena recently revealed that their well-liked Battle Royale game, Free Fire, would be relaunching in India. According to a press release from the company, the game will relaunch on September 5 as Free Fire India and will have features that are only available to Indian gamers. According to current sources, however, the launch has been postponed a few weeks as Garena works to provide players with the greatest experience possible.
Launch of Garena Free Fire India is postponed.
In a Moneycontrol article, Garena claims that the delay in the game's release was necessary so they could provide the "best possible experience to all of their Free Fire India fans" right away.
The business stated in a statement, "We are taking some time to fully complete our localisation of the Free Fire India experience, in addition to refining the gameplay."

In addition, the Singapore-based gaming behemoth revealed that MS Dhoni has signed on as the game's brand ambassador and would be playable as the character Thala.
Why did India forbid Garena Free Fire?
Due to concerns over a security and privacy danger to Indian users, the Indian government banned hundreds of Chinese apps in India in February of last year. Despite being made by a Singaporean firm, Garena Free Fire was added to the country's list of prohibited apps because it was considered a "security threat".
The ban, according to the ministry of electronics and IT, is crucial because these apps "pose a threat to the country's security" and are rumored to be able to "obtain various critical permissions" as well as "collect sensitive user data."
Another well-known Battle Royale game, BGMI, was also included on the list of prohibited titles. To the surprise of Indian players, the game was unbanned in May and made accessible for download on the App Store and Google Store.
