Overwatch 2 and other Blizzard titles have been officially taken offline in China after a contract extension with NetEase flopped. The Overwatch League teams based in China are now in disbelief as the game is no longer playable in the country.

Fans and teams have been left in denial as to whether or not Blizzard games in China would be terminated, including Overwatch 2, because to the shutdown. The Chengdu Hunters, Guangzhou Charge, Hangzhou Spark, Shanghai Dragons, and the Los Angeles Valiant, who have their headquarters in China, are some of the five teams affected by the closure.

After failing by Blizzard and NetEase to renew their licensing agreement, the suspension of the games was announced in November. The game was terminated on January 23rd.

According to Sean Miller, the Overwatch League's head, the league is working hard behind the scenes to work out details and is hoping to share more information with the community in the next couple of weeks. "We can't wait for the 2023 season to start," said the man in a Dot Esports article.
