Since the announcement of Free Fire India, every Indian player has been eagerly awaiting its launch. The game developer initially promised to launch it on September 5, but due to some server issues, the date was postponed.
Since the news of this postponed date came out, many players have been quite upset. It has been more than two months since the postponement of Free Fire India, but the game developer has not provided any statement regarding the launch date. Why is Free Fire India not being launched yet? What is happening that is causing such a delay in the launch of Free Fire India? The new launch date of Free Fire India is discussed in this post.
The Biggest Reason Behind Free Fire India Delay
On September 5, 2023, the game developer cited server issues as the reason for postponing the launch date of Free Fire India. However, the actual reason seems to be something the game developer does not want to disclose. The game developer is facing a significant challenge that is preventing the launch of Free Fire India.
This challenge may be coming from the Indian government. It is said that Free Fire India does not comply with some rules of the Indian government, leading to the government not allowing its launch. It should be noted that the Indian government banned Free Fire on February 14, 2021, due to security concerns. They do not want the same security concerns in Free Fire India.
According to leaks, it has been revealed that on the Indian servers of Free Fire Max, any game elements (items, rewards) that contain the words ‘Free Fire’ are being removed. For example, if ‘Free Fire’ is written behind clothes, it is being removed. This indicates that the game developer wants to fully comply with the rules of the Indian government and launch Free Fire India soon, but they have not been able to optimize the game as well as the Indian government desires. This is why Free Fire India has not been launched yet.
So when will Free Fire India launch?
The game developer is completely optimizing their game according to the regulations of the Indian government and wants to launch Free Fire India soon. However, they have not been able to optimize the game as well as the Indian government desires.
It is worth noting that the developers of Free Fire do not want the same fate as the BGMI game. After PUBG was banned in India, the developers launched BGMI under a different name, and it was easily launched in India. However, after some time, the Indian government also imposed a ban on this game. After that, the BGMI developers optimized the game according to the rules of the Indian government, and after a trial period of 3 months, they were given permission to launch the game in India.
Similarly, if Free Fire India had been launched without being optimized according to the rules of India, it could have been banned. Keeping this in mind, the Free Fire game developer postponed its launch date.
It is difficult to say when the new date will be as the game developer still does not want to provide any information about it. Players are only hoping that Free Fire India will be launched by the end of 2023. Currently, the developer has launched the PC version of Free Fire, and in this way, Free Fire India will also be launched soon. Players are requested to be patient.
