PUBG and Fortnite outside of China? It appears, according to a post from a user’s reddit called / u / ZeroWolf547, China’s Ethics Review Committee analyzed more than 20 online games for possible ethical risks and allegedly banned 9 of them, Fortnite, PUBG, and Paladins.
The other games that – supposedly – were banned include the H1Z1, Ring of Elysium and Alliance of Valiant Arms. Among the biggest and most popular games, including League of Legends, Overwatch, Diablo and World of Warcraft, game publishers would have been instructed to take preventative measures.
Titles are cited as places where there are inharmonious chat rooms, and well, who can deny it, is not it? Fortnite and PUBG, among other games, are not exactly known for being games with a really cool community. Among the quotations are also included “rewards given on the basis of classification” and “vulgar content”, among others.
It is not known if it is true or not, but according to the post in reddit explains, if this is really happening, it is not known whether it is imposed by regulators or how regulators could do it. PUBG and Fornite are still playable in the country. They also updated the post with information that Blizzard initially denied the reports through the Chinese social media platform Weibo, but the posting has already been deleted.
Hi-Rez Studios, the official publisher of Paladins, released an official note. She said that ” Tencent manages the Paladins in China, including the full operation of the game and the entire interface with the government in relation to the game. At this time, we can not confirm or deny anything about the denunciations made regarding a government ban or on corrective measures “.
