  • PUBG was banned in Jordan, man defies government

The move would follow what Jordan's Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) claims was an "in-depth study" that led to the PUBG ban.

In any case, PUBG doesn't seem to be the only game that the TRC has in its sights. But it looks like this isn't the only game that's made the country's ban list.

In another statement, the TRC said that it is planning to ban six other video games, including Fortnite game.

It seems that violent games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will always be at the center of some sort of controversy.

In coordination with the government, the TRC had earlier chose to ban the game for the national interest after it had received many complaints from a large number of citizens and some concerned authorities about the negative impact of this game.

The information from Roya News also stated that Fortnite could be receiving such treatment very soon in Jordan, as revealed by the TRC's Mohammad AlWathiq Shaqrah here, who also says another six games may be considered aside from PUBG. The WHO hasn't remained silent on gaming, though - earlier this year the WHO did recognize gaming disorder as a legitimate issue, which it classifies as "a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior, which may be online or offline". According to the statement, World Health Organization confirmed that children playing such games are more violent than their peers and are more likely to develop aggressive thoughts and behavior. But in some, the game is still banned such as in China (mostly because of non-licensing of microtransaction and due availability of state-approved clone version of PUBG by TenCent) and Iran (government claims the game is a national security risk).
