Garena, the gaming arm of Singaporean tech giant Sea, has announced the relaunch of Free Fire in India on August 31. The game titled ‘Free Fire India’ has finally got a green signal from the Indian Government after being banned for more than a year and a half. During the official announcement, Garena stated that Free Fire India would be launched on September 5.
In a surprising turn of events, the game won’t be released today as the developer has announced the postponement of the much-anticipated launch of Free Fire India. Free Fire fans who have longed for the game since its ban in the country were delighted as the developers announced the game with big changes and were eagerly waiting for its release.
The game is set to make its return with Mahendra Singh Dhoni as its brand ambassador and his in-game character. This unexpected decision from the developers has left Free Fire India fans in disappointment.

Free Fire India Launch Postponed by Garena

According to the announcement, the release has been delayed by a few weeks, and the developers have not given a new release date.
