China is taking further steps to combat “gaming addiction”. They have ended all new game approvals.
Can Funcom give a response here or elsewhere on this matter? Are there plans in place in the event China, and therefor Tencent take a hard line against games like Conan Exiles?
If the CCP demands Tencent stop pursuing games like Conan Exiles. Being that their HQ is in China, can they shut down further development of Conan Exiles. Or shutter Funcom all together? (Now that they own a majority stake?)
My hope would be Tencent would simply sell it’s shares rather than squatting on them for the IP rights in the future?
Any clarity on this would be appreciated. I am genuinely curious what Funcom’s plans are on this matter.
