[Release] has actually been doing its finest to work out with Activision Blizzard, wanting to promote the renewal of the contract. After an extended period of negotiations, we still might not reach arrangement with Activision Blizzard on some key regards to cooperation. We regret that Activision Blizzard today announced that it will stop cooperation, and we will need to accept this decision. Release will continue to satisfy its obligations and serve the gamers until the last moment.
Release has actually now reacted to Blizzard’s press release about the suspension of their video game services in China and the end of their licensing agreement with Release, as reported by the Kechuangban Daily, through CaiLianShe (财联社).
A big thanks to Neo for the translation and for finding the announcement.
