Apple Removes 39,000 Games That Are Not Licensed From China App Store

Apple removes 39,000 games that are not licensed with chinese government from China app store, on Thursday according to Reuters.

The move, which came after Apple set a Dec. 31 deadline for companies to obtain licenses in order to remain in the app store, reportedly swept up titles from major companies including Ubisoft.

According to Reuters, research firm Qimai found that just 74 of the top 1,500 paid titles remained on the platform after the purge.

An analysis of China’s video game industry earlier this year found that just a few dozen foreign titles are granted licenses by Beijing each month; a blog post on a website owned by Chinese video game company Yaji Software described the process of obtaining a license as “practically impossible” without partnership with a Chinese-owned company.
