Gaming in China: Chinese government says no to “Wrath of the Lich King”

JLM Pacific Epoch reports the Chinese government “has rejected two applications by the second expansion for World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King since China’s Spring Festival (January 25 – February 1).” Considering Blizzard has removed “skeleton characters” from WoW in the past and the supposedly gold farmer-free million plus player count for WoW in China, Joystiq is willing to bet Blizzard (and its licensing partner in China, The9) will find a way to release Wrath of the Lich King yet.
