The popular battle royale game Free Fire’s exclusive Indian release has been delayed by “a few weeks” by Singapore-based game creator Garena in order to finish its localization.

Last week, Garena said Free Fire was set to make a comeback in India after being banned for a year-and-a-half, with the game available for download on September 5.However, the company said it is postponing the launch of the game to offer the ‘best possible experience to all their Free Fire India Fans’.

The business stated in a statement, “We are taking some time to thoroughly complete our translation of the Free Fire India experience, in addition to polishing the gameplay.”On August 31, Garena made its initial announcement about the release of its limited-edition “Free Fire India” version, announcing MS Dhoni as its brand ambassador.

The company added that Free Fire India will only be available in India and will include features and content tailored to the regional market.

Due to security concerns, the Ministry of Home Affairs banned Free Fire and 53 other apps in India in February of last year. Free Fire Max, a premium version of the game that was not prohibited by the Center, was how Garena continued to operate in India.

Free Fire India Launch Postponed by 'Few More Weeks'

The most recent edition of Free Fire in India will have, among other things, a verification system to permit parental supervision and gaming restrictions to allay the Center’s worries.For the relaunch, the business has teamed up with Yotta, a business inside the Hiranandani Group. Yotta will supply the game with local cloud hosting and storage infrastructure.

Following a three-month assessment procedure, it was also revealed last week that South Korean gaming juggernaut KRAFTON gained full authorization from the Center to run its battle royale game Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI).

During the past few years, India has become an attractive market for gaming firms thanks to increased internet and smartphone usage. According to statistics, the number of esports participants in India increased four-fold to 6,00,000 in 2022 from 1,50,000 in 2021.
