Epic Games had been testing a separate Chinese version for its popular free battle royale Fortnite for some time now, and it has now been confirmed that that version will close mid-November. Like published by the official site for Fortnite China and reported by Kotaku, this version of the game, developed by Tencent, will shut down on November 15.

Fortnite China was specifically designed to appeal to the Chinese audience as well as adhere to China’s strict gaming policies. The changes included the absence of blood and skulls, alongside the complete removal of in-app purchases. However, as Niko Partners’ senior analyst Daniel Ahmad reported on Twitter, the game was being tested for over two years, and to this day the Chinese government has not greenlit it.

From a business perspective, it didn’t make sense to continue investing in the service for so long with no results to show for it. Fortnite in its original form is still growing stronger than ever, with regular content updates providing new skins, game modes, events, and more at a steady pace.
