Apple removes 39,000 games from China App Store



Apple on Thursday removed almost 39,000 apps from its Chinese App Store due to the apps lacking an official license from local regulators, reports Reuters.

The report, which cites data from research firm Qimai, says that games affected by the crash included the Ubisoft title Assassin’s Creed Identity and NBA 2K20. According to Qimai, only 74 of the 1,500 highest paid games on the China App Store survived the purge.

In addition to the 39,000 games, the report states that Apple also removed more than 46,000 apps in total from its store.

In February, Apple gave app developers an initial deadline of June 30 to prove they had a license for their games, and later extended the deadline to December 31. However, in July, the company froze updates for thousands of iOS mobile games that lack an official license, and in August removed 30,000 apps for similar reasons.

Apple in July reportedly warned developers about removing apps if their apps did not meet government requirements. Removal of apps that lack official licenses is said to come from increasing government pressure on Apple to comply with local regulations that have been in place since 2016.
