Free Fire has become one of the major and most popular Battle Royale titles in the mobile gaming industry. The officials have also made a niche for the game in the competitive scene as well which has contributed much to its popularity. Free Fire is increasing the lobby to 60 members in custom matches (Esports/Tournament mode), as per some leaks that surfaced on the internet.

Free Fire OB34 Update has recently rolled out for both Android and iOS devices whereas the Max variant also received the new update. Similar to all other updates, this new update was also set to bring in new cosmetics, changes, and additions to in-game elements. A new feature might be introduced that increases the custom lobby members from 48 to 60 players which would account for 15 teams in total.

Free Fire or its MAX Variant is known to be the fast-paced BR game where one match gets completed in approx. 15 minutes. It will feature only 50 players in a single match. Therefore, tournaments would have to settle it down to 12 teams  (48 members) in a single game. Considering a new leak, it is going to be increased to 15 teams i.e., 60 players.

A new post from Xtrascore Esports Instagram reports that Free Fire is testing this new lobby size for custom matches and an official statement is due. With 15 teams in this fast-paced Battle Royale game, fans can witness potential and tough competition among teams. All the teams would have to fight much harder in order to clench Booyah in the game.

Since this is just a leak, gamers should take this piece of information with a pinch of salt until an official announcement is made. But if this turns out to be true, there will be huge competition and custom lovers can witness eye-feasting moments among their favorite teams.

Free Fire is banned in India back in February 2022 citing security concerns. However, the MAX variant is still being played in India and some orgs & platforms are conducting un-official tournaments.
