A Lot Video Games Banned In Saudi Arabia Due To Child Deaths, Blue Whale To Blame

Saudia Arabia has decided to ban a lot of famous games after the news of two children who killed themselves after they were encouraged to do in the online game. Games banned in Saudi Arabia include GTA V, Witcher 3, Assassins Creed 2 and more.

The Saudi General Commission for Audio-Visual Media said on Monday that they are taking actions in response to the recent child deaths by banning many video games. The ban is a result of death of a 12-year-old boy and a death of 13-year-old girl who played the famous Blue Whale social media game until they were asked to kill themselves.

The Saudi General Commission for Audio-Visual Media has banned the likes of Witcher 3, Grand Theft Auto V, Wolfenstein 2, God Of War, Mafia 3 and more for unspecified violations of rules and regulations.
