Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. and NetEase, Inc. Renew Operation Agreement in China
Sep 27 16
Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. and NetEase, Inc. jointly announced the extension of their collaboration in mainland China to January 2020. The renewed operation agreement includes Blizzard's World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and Overwatch, as well as new content for these games during the agreement period. The relationship between Blizzard and NetEase is now entering its ninth year. The two companies began working together in 2008 with a license agreement to bring Blizzard's StarCraft II and Battle.net platform into China. Since then the two companies have brought a series of epic games to Chinese players, from StarCraft II to Blizzard's popular FPS game Overwatch, and most recently the sixth expansion for World of Warcraft, Legion. Over the years, Blizzard and NetEase have worked hard toward the goal of launching Blizzard games in China simultaneously with Blizzard's launches in other regions--a goal the companies have been proud to achieve in recent years, with immensely positive feedback from Chinese players. The renewal of the operation agreement announced reflects the achievements of the past eight years and further solidifies the existing collaboration between the two companies.
