Blizzard Entertainment said in a statement on November 16 that it will suspend most of its Blizzard game services in mainland China due to the expiration of the current licensing agreement with NetEase on January 23, 2023.

Among the suspended games: World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Overwatch, Starcraft, Warcraft III: Reset, Diablo III, and Heroes of the Storm.

Diablo: Immortal's co-development and release involved a separate agreement between the two companies

"No renewal agreements have been reached that are consistent with Blizzard's operating principles and commitments to its players and employees, and these agreements will expire in January 2023," the statement said.

In response to Blizzard's unilateral announcement of the termination of cooperation with NetEase, NetEase said that NetEase has been doing its best to negotiate with Activision Blizzard, hoping to push forward the renewal of the contract.

“ After lengthy negotiations, we were unable to reach an agreement with Activision Blizzard on some of the key terms of our partnership. It is with great regret that Activision Blizzard has announced today that they are discontinuing their partnership, and we will have to accept the decision. NetEase will continue to fulfill its duty to serve our players until the last moment. ” NetEase responded.
