Fortnite is shutting down its China servers


Fortnite’s mobile game was released in China back in 2018 but is still in beta due to strict government regulations. Now the developers of the game have decided to shut down the Chinese Fortnite servers without giving any reason for this.

Even if the company didn’t specify any reason, we know that the decision has been taken due to increasing restrictions on the gaming sector by the Chinese government. Recently, the Chinese government also imposed 3 hours per week gaming restriction to children below the age of 18.

The new regulation requires online games to be connected through an “anti-addiction” system run by the government. Gamers must use real names and government-issued documentation for identification. Gaming companies also cannot provide services to users who haven’t logged in with real-name registration.

It is also now become hard to sell virtual items in China. So, the freemium business model isn’t working for the company in China.

Fortune services will not be available in China starting November 15.
