Ever since PUBG became the immensely popular force of gaming it is today, various governments around the world have taken aim at it. Jordan is the latest to do so, with the country's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority announcing that is has made the decision to ban PUBG.

As reported by the Jordanian website Roya News, the Bluehole Studioshooter was blocked following an analysis that found its negative impact on "players of all generations". 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". These "violent games" will include games related to PUBG which might also mean Fortnite getting banned ( another leader in Battle Royale category).

A man, who seems to be obsessed with PUBG game, has defied the government's decision of banning the game in Jordan.

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. 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. Many countries have banned the game arguing it to be too violent for kids and teenagers which might cause harm to the mentally and sometimes physically. The agency also claims to have received a large number of complaints from citizens over the alleged negative impact of PUBG, Fortnite, and five other unnamed games.
