Lucknow: The 2019’s most downloaded battle royale game, Garena Free Fire, has been removed from Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store in India. Though the reason for this move is still not known as there is no official comment from the makers of Free Fire yet, the news reports speculate that the South Korean game developer Krafton is behind this move.
Notably, Krafton is the makers of PUBG that was banned in India by the Centre and then later they came up with Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI).
As per reports, BMGI developers, Krafton has filed a lawsuit against Garena, accusing it of copying the theme of its game. Krafton has also demanded its ban. Furthermore, the PUBG developer also sued Google and Apple for allowing Garena to be available on their respective app stores.
The Free Fire Max is though still available on the Play Store and not sure till how long would it be there. Garena amassed a huge user base in India after PUBG got banned.
