After a ban in India, PUBG Mobile could soon be banned in Bangladesh as well. The Bangladeshi Government could also ban Garena Free Fire. According to Bangladeshi publication Daily Manab Zamin, the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications of Bangladesh is of the opinion that the two games have created addiction among teenagers and young adults.

The Bangladeshi government also plans to block access to the games through VPN. Currently, they haven't taken any decision and the games are available to play but the scenario could change if they decide to ban the games.  

PUBG Mobile was banned in India in September 2020 due to national security reasons. Krafton came back with a new battle royale called Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) that will be available to play only in India. BGMI is different from PUBG Mobile, it includes different features and an updated privacy policy. The game hasn't even released yet and an MLA from Arunachal Pradesh has requested PM Modi to ban BGMI as it poses a threat to national security. Free Fire, on the other hand, enjoys a massive player base from India. 

Battlegrounds Mobile India release date

Currently, Battlegrounds Mobile India is live for pre-registration on the Google Play Store. As for the release date, there hasn't been an official confirmation from Krafton but according to several reports, the game could launch in the country on June 18.
