World of Warcraft: More Trouble in China

Fans of World of Warcraft residing in China may be in for a rough week.

The General Administration of Press and Publication (GAPP), a regulatory body of the Chinese government, suspended their approval of Activision Blizzard’s The Burning Crusade (the latest version available in China) today, citing “gross violations” of regulations.

The GAPP has asked the Chinese WoW operator, NetEase, to stop collecting fees and to suspend registration of new accounts.  Currently the WoW battlenet gateway still appears to be accepting registration – so it is unclear how (or rather when) the ruling will affect players.
