SC2 shut down in China, WTL to continue

All Blizzard games aside from Diablo Immortal, which runs under a separate agreement, had to shut down their services in China on January 23, 2023, due to the partnership between Blizzard and NetEase running out. Foreign developers need to be partnered up with a Chinese company to publish games in the country, a condition Blizzard no longer fulfills.

Things have turned into a bit of an ugly divorce, so reconciliation seems very unlikely for now. Blizzard is said to look for a new distribution partner in China, but it’s impossible to know how long that will take.

The good news for SC2 is that the SCBOY community is still determined to not only finish the ongoing season of WTL, but to hold a Spring 2023 Season as well – though without the financial support of NetEase.

Best of luck to our Chinese friends in their new adventures on the Asia server, and let’s hope for a somewhat swift return of StarCraft and Warcraft there – all your achievements and rankings might have been deleted, but you still have your memories and you’re still a part of this community.
