  暴雪与网易的授权协议将于2023年1月23日到期 暴雪部分国服游戏将随即下线

  2022年11月17日,暴雪娱乐今日宣布,其与网易公司现有的授权协议将于2023年1月23日到期结束,而暴雪大多数的国服游戏服务也将随之中止,其中包括《魔兽世界®》、《炉石传说®》、《魔兽争霸®III:重制版》、《守望先锋®》、《星际争霸®》系列,《暗黑破坏神®III》及《风暴英雄®》。《暗黑破坏神:不朽®》的联合开发与发行由两家公司另外的协议所涵盖。

  暴雪娱乐与网易于2008年达成授权协议,涵盖上述暴雪国服游戏的发行。两家公司此次未能达成一份能与暴雪的运行准则、以及暴雪对玩家与员工的承诺相秉承一致的续约协议,目前的授权协议将于2023年1月到期。

  我们将在未来几天中止国服新游戏内容的销售。中国的玩家将会很快获知相关的具体信息。即将到来的"《魔兽世界》:巨龙时代"及"《炉石传说》:巫妖王的进军"以及《守望先锋》"归来"第二赛季国服内容,仍将于今年晚些时候如期上线。

  暴雪娱乐总裁Mike Ybarra表示:"我们借助网易及其他合作伙伴,将我们的游戏引入中国已将近20年。对于中国玩家群体在这些年来所展现出的激情,我们心怀深深的感激,也一直被他们的热忱与创意所激励和鼓舞。我们正在寻找机遇将我们的游戏在未来重新带回给玩家。"
