The past 24 hours have been very stressful and nerve-wracking for Indian Free Fire gamers. The problem began with login issues and eventually led to the game's removal from the Indian Play Store.

Due to a lack of official information, players are left perplexed about why Google removed the title. Since this is an India-only issue, players in the region worry about the game's future, given the prior abrupt ban on PUBG.


Free Fire has been removed from the India App and Play Store

As of yesterday, the game has been unavailable on both major platforms. Its sudden disappearance from iOS and Android has ruffled the base in the country.

In contrast, several gamers on the Android platform see:

“Something went wrong to try again.”

This doesn't seem to be a technical issue with the game, as global players can access Garena's flagship title. Given Free Fire's sudden removal, numerous rumors and speculations have flooded the internet, with several players anticipating a ban.
