Since the new World of Warcraft expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, released in Europe and the US, most hardcore Chinese WoW fans have been concerned about its conditions and the date of the new experience.
Why was it delayed to open for players in China? We note that there are different responses to this event. However, we are deeply sorry that we have been overwhelmed by various rumors. A gaming website posted that the main reason may come from Blizzard itself, because they wanted to increase the cost of the WoW license for China’s operator The9, however, The9’s reluctance to part with the extra money; some analysis said that the delay is mainly due to the supervision of China’s policy, according to their presumption, the launch will probably come after the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference; Also some reports show that they see that Blizzard is looking for other companies to cooperate …
Faced with so many rumors and analysis, The9 announced that it should stand out and announce that they never opened anything about the release date of the new World of Warcraft expansion Wrath of the Lich King, including any campaigns. They are currently busy preparing work for the release of Wrath of the Lich King.
Based on the current situation, we must firmly believe that The9 is Blizzard’s best collaborator in China, and we hope that one day the delay will be closed with a new contract, perhaps in June, if all of the above presumed to be correct. We will closely monitor this matter and its development, even if related services around the world.
