Recently the Chinese government established an online game review committee. Online games circulating in China will be reviewed whether it is worth playing or not. A total of 20 online games were reviewed by the committee and stated that 9 online games were not suitable to be played in China and would be banned by the Chinese government.
This is a debate that is no less shocking by the community of online game players around the world. Considering that China previously censored Winnie the Pooh in the Kingdom Heart 3 game. According to the committee, banning games circulated in China due to elements of blood, violence, vulgar content, overly open female characters and unhealthy communities.
Most of the 9 games that were banned were battle royale games. Other than Players Unknown’s Battlegrounds and other Fortnite games are H1Z1, Ring of Elysium, Paladins, Free Fire, etc.
Meanwhile 11 other games received a strong rebuke from the committee. These games include Arena of Valor, League of Legends, Diablo, World of Warcraft, Overwatch, etc. In addition to getting a warning from the developers, they must make improvements to the game so as not to violate the prevailing norms in China.
Developers who get the effect still from the ban by the online game review committee are Tencent. A total of 6 games were included in the list of games affected by the committee’s review. Where two of them will end their existence in the world of Chinese games.
Chinese people still don’t know when the banning process will begin. Until now they can still play PUBG and Fortnite games.
