As reported by Roya News (via GamesIndustry.biz), Eng. Mohammad AlWathiq Shaqrah, director of beneficiaries affairs at the country’s Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC), has said that following PUBG’s ban there are potentially six more to follow. He reportedly told Roya in an interview that “Fortnite is one of the games expected to be banned.”
It appears that the PUBG ban came into effect on July 4, and the decision was made partly in response to an alleged World Health Organisation study that the TRC says classified PUBG as a violent game, according to a statement it released this weekend. It claims (translated using Google) that the study “classified this game as a violent game leading to addiction and social isolation” and that children who play “such games are more violent than their peers”.
