In April of 2019, the game was banned in Nepal after the Nepal Metropolitan Crime Division filed a Public Interest Litigation with the Kathmandu District Court. The reason for the ban was due to parents and schools complaining about the game affecting their children's studies. Psychiatrists in the country also claimed that the game made more people aggressive due to the in-game violence, which influenced the authority's decision. All ISPs and mobile service providers were ordered by the Nepal Telecommunication Authority to block the game.
