Every Free Fire player has one question on their mind following the announcement of the popular Battle Royale game BGMI's return: will Free Fire return? The Indian government banned the battle royal game from all platforms more than fifteen months ago. Gamers are optimistic about the future of the original title because Free Fire MAX has been around since its start.
In accordance with section 69A of the IT Act, the game was restricted by the Indian government in July 2022 because of worries about data protection. The Government of India has given KRAFTON permission to manage BGMI activities after extensive negotiations and work on the part of all parties involved, with the game developer committing to follow the conditions. BGMI will undergo an additional 1.5-month trial, during which the Indian government will continue to keep an eye on it.
Shiv Nandy, who is the founder of popular esports company Skyesports recently made a statement about the return of Free Fire which said “It seems that Garena is making a strong effort to bring back Free Fire in India and is just a few steps closer. BGMI is also set to come back anytime soon. With games like BGMI, Free Fire, Counter-Strike, Pokemon Unite, and Valorant, Indian Esports Industry is poised to reach new heights.”
There have been murmurs concerning the title's reappearance throughout the past few months. Garena has not yet indicated that it would make a comeback, though. Through Road to Valours Empires, KRAFTON has become more visible in the Indian gaming community during the past few months. On the other side, Garena has not taken any actions to suggest that the Free Fire may return soon.
