China’s Ban on Video Games Continues with Apple

The Chinese App Store sustained by Apple has confirmed thousands of applications were removed permanently. Demands were issued by the Chinese Communist Party to Apple, stating all unlicensed applications must permanently be removed by December 31st. It’s resulted in Chinese iPhone owners having considerably less entertainment available on their mobile phones, a purposeful tactic implemented by China’s Communist Party. The CCP have strategized they’ll take control over the gaming industry & ensure that civilians cannot abuse that entertainment, with Chinese personnel informed their permitted a maximum of one hour for video games per day. It’s announcements of this nature which show the Chinese people don’t have any civil rights, with prominent games across China disputing recent regulations implemented by the CCP.

CCP Representatives have clarified Apple needs to sustain transparency regarding the applications given to Chinese civilians & that because transparent reports weren’t issued before legislative orders were enacted, thousands of applications must be terminated. Its bullish behaviour meant to further the CCPs aspiration to govern over China’s gaming industry. Apple hasn’t agreed with issued demands but are subjected to follow or face permanent operational bans in China. That’s the standard tactic employed by the Chinese Communist Party with international corporations. Listen to legislative orders or be barred from billions of consumers.

Reports issued by the BBC notified that Apple was pressured by China’s Communist Party, which for years has increased their enforcement over the technology industry. That enforcement resulted in forty-eight thousand applications being terminated from the Apple Chinese Store. Largescale apps holding licensing rights in China were still removed, showing the CCP pressured Apple to eliminate legalized properties for their governing aspirations. Licensing products removed included “Assassins Creed Identity” and “NBA 2K20”, with all other Ubisoft properties being terminated as well.

BBC Reporters noted that an average of ninety publication licenses are issued for video games in China per year. Those licenses are typically supported to corporate entities holding prominent ties with the Chinese Communist Party. Largescale developers once famed in the United States have lost their reputations after connections to the CCP were learned. That includes Blizzard Entertainment, developers behind World of Warcraft.
