Fortnite officially gave up trying to crack China

Epic Games officially abandoned the pursuit of fully offering Fortnite to Chinese viewers as the studio calls time on Chinese servers without earning a penny.

As reported by Bloomberg, Epic Games yesterday (November 15th), after a three-year game trial period, stopped Fortnite service.

According to Bloomberg, the game started very positively in an attempt to enter the Chinese market, with 10 million players pre-registered to play the game in the summer of 2018. However, national law requires a new video. Games to get approval to sell copies of virtual items in the region did not launch properly.

Epic’s decision to shut down the server happens when people in Beijing are more closely monitoring the impact of video games on their children. In September, the government often aimed to limit children’s play time to three hours a week, but instead encouraged them to participate in other outdoor recreational activities.

The trial version of Fortnite has been running in China for the past three years, but there are many differences from the global version. Due to government restrictions, game players cannot purchase digital items or cosmetics to customize their avatars.

As reported by GameRantThe version played in this area seems to have allowed multiple winners during the match and adjusted to fit Chinese values. This meant that players who survived for more than 20 minutes would automatically win, regardless of the number of standing players.
