Gaming companies are facing increasing censorship from the Chinese government

Epic Games, the developer of “Fortnite”, has announced that it is pulling the plug on the Chinese version of “Fortnite”.

For the last couple of years, the developing studio has tried to negotiate with the Chinese government regarding “Fortnite”. However, the government’s concerns over online addiction and the broader tech sector made it hard for Epic Games to launch its project in the country.

“Fortnite” was only accessible as a Beta test in China. Now, all the servers have been shut down. The Chinese government has taken several decisions over the last couple of months regarding gaming companies, stating that spending too many hours playing games was detrimental to the growth of children.
