An interview was conducted by Roya's "Nabd Al Balad" program on Tuesday, July 9, Shaqrah said "Fortnite game is one of the games expected to be banned." As well as PUBG being banned, the TRC also says that they are planning on banning 6 more games and it seems Fortnite is in their scopes.

The ban has come from a recent study that reportedly confirmed that PUBG was negatively impacting gamers of all generations. At the moment no other games have been banned as of yet, but it seems that it won't be long before other battle royale titles could be in the sights of the TRC.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
