Garena, the gaming arm of Singapore tech giant Sea, has delayed the launch of its battle royale game Free Fire India by a few weeks.

The company said it is doing so to ensure that it can offer the "best possible experience" to its Indian fans.

Free Fire India was originally scheduled to be released on September 5, but Garena said it needs more time to "refine the gameplay" and "fully complete the localization of the Free Fire India experience."

The company also said that it is taking into account the feedback it has received from Indian gamers since it announced the launch of Free Fire India.

Garena is hoping to release Free Fire India in the coming weeks. The company has not yet announced a specific date for the launch.

In the meantime, Garena continues to offer a more premium variant of Free Fire called Free Fire Max.

This version of the game was not banned by the Indian government. Garena's decision to delay the launch of Free Fire India is a setback for the company, but it is understandable.
