Mobile gamers in China have seen many games disappear recently for several reasons. For example, Apple comes from drawn 39,000 games in its App Store because they lacked an ISBN (International Standard Book Number) from the Chinese government. Many Western titles were included in the purge, including Assassin’s Creed Identity and NBA 2K20, leaving only 74 of the 1,500 top paying games.
As usual in cases like this, it is the users who end up suffering. “We are communicating and negotiating with Huawei’s mobile gaming platform for a solution, and hope to resume our services as soon as possible,” Tencent said in a statement.
