Garena is amazed after witnessing Free Fire’s popularity at the Free Fire World Series(FFWS) 2021 tournament. As per Esports Charts, FFWS 2021 was one of the most successful esports events for Free Fire, and it has garnered 5,414,953 viewers, and an average of 2,087,307 viewers.

And the success journey of the game isn’t without rocky routes, the Bangladesh government is apparently aiming to ban the game along with PUBG Mobile. As per Bangladesh-based publication Daily Manab Zamin  several government bodies have recommended removing PUBG Mobile and Free Fire from the country, as these games not only making kids addicted but they also are violent in nature.

As per Republic,   Bangladesh Mobile Phone Users Association president Mohiuddin Ahmed has expressed that “While we are relentlessly working to get the next generation of young people to have access to high-speed internet, the next generation has gone astray by abusing technology, which has made us think.”

On the other hand Garena is constantly working on to tie up with the prominent brands like Capcom, to reach out to more players and to climb up the peak. Recently it has announced its  collaborations to bring international football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and Japanese anime series Attack on Titan into Free Fire.
