Does Free Fire belong to a Chinese company?

In fact, Free Fire was developed and published by Garena which was founded in 2009 in Singapore. Along with Shopee and SeaMoney, Garena is run under the parent company Sea Limited whose CEO is a China-born businessman Forrest Li. However, after graduating from Stanford Graduate School of Business in the US, Li moved to Singapore and started up his business. He also had Singapore citizenship so he is no longer a Chinese now.

For the reasons above, it can be assured that Free Fire won’t be banned in India as the game legally belongs to a Singapore company, not a Chinese one!
