Fortnite Is Shutting Down In China

One of the most popular games in the world will no longer be playable in one of the biggest video game markets. Fortnite is officially shutting down in China.

The official Chinese website for Fortnite has announced the game will shut down and no longer be playable starting from 15 November 2021.

Fortnite originally launched in China back in April 2018, but it turns out that the game was never approved by the Chinese government. It’s essentially been in testing mode for the past few years and as a result, could not be properly monetized, according to video game analyst Daniel Ahmad.

In other related news, Fortnite also recently added the skins of Paul Atreides and Chani from the movie Dune.
