NTES may get the right to Starcraft 2

My last post on NTES can be found here:


There are quite a few stories on NTES. I will post them in the next few days.

There is a consistent rumor that NTES will become the operator for the game “Starcraft 2” in China. See the following story:


Starcraft 2 is a major game developed by Blizzard, the same company that made World of Warcraft. But Starcraft 2 is a single player game. It will probably have some limited online features such as battle field, etc.

The game itself is probably not that important for NTES. But its significance is that it gives NTES a leg up if Blizzard is going to develop “Starcraft Online”. Starcraft Online has the potential to take the mantel from the block-buster "World of Warcraft".

Interestingly, Blizzard vice CEO, Frank Pearce, hinted that the Starcraft 2 will be in China soon.


This is just a rumor for now. But if this is true, I am happy for NTES. But it will not be a good news for NCTY.
