China orders Tencent to kill off new game

China orders Tencent to kill off new game

Tencent added that players who have already bought the game can get a full refund in five business days if they apply for it by August 20. But, it's unclear as to what Tencent and Capcom will need to change, to ensure the game is once again available in the country. WeGame is a Steam like service for China owned by the massive conglomerate, Tencent.

Shares in Tencent, which is set to report half-year earnings on Wednesday, closed down 3.4 percent, against a 0.7 percent fall in the benchmark Hang Seng share price index .HSI. Despite the game's recent release, regulators are now ordering Tencent Holdings Ltd., the social media company responsible for releasing the game for download, to take it down and cease allowing for downloads.

Also, the game reportedly isn't mods friendly as one PC modder has noted that Monster Hunter World PC features the strongest anti-mod tech he has ever encountered. Last month, Capcom said that the game had cumulative sales of 8.3 million copies by the quarter that ended in June. This is just an estimated figure, we should point out, not official sales, but it's highly possible that right now Monster Hunter: World sales are over 10 million units worldwide, with the franchise as a whole hitting over 50 million units sold. "The recent fumbling of core gaming operations is a worrying trend, and investors can reasonably begin to ask if constant investment and competition with Alibaba are causing Tencent to lose focus".

As can be seen on SteamCharts, moreover, the number of active users simultaneously has exceeded the peak of 329 thousand players, making the Capcom hunting game one of the most played titles on Steam of the moment. Revenues for PC games were flat from a year ago, but Tencent had two major hit games on its portfolio. The Ministry of Culture and Tourism, which regulates the video games industry, did not respond to requests for comment.

The other game is "Fortnite," a tournament-style game that is popular in competitive video gaming.
