The Chinese government has resumed video game approvals following a nine-month moratorium on the publication of new titles.
A number of games have been already been approved and will soon be certified for release, China Securities Journal cites Feng Shixin, a senior official at the Communist Party’s propaganda department, as saying at a government-led trade conference in the southern Chinese city of Haikou on Friday.
“We are accelerating the process of issuing licenses for game titles,” he said.
“There are still quite a few games on the waiting list.
It takes time and I hope everyone will be patient.”
Feng stressed the importance that homegrown games uphold social responsibilities.
