Monster Hunter: World pulled from Tencent’s WeGame days after launch
WeGame says authorities received “numerous” complaints about game’s content
Just when everything seemed to be going well for WeGame, Tencent announced on Monday that Monster Hunter: World was no longer available for purchase after authorities received “numerous” complaints about its content.
WeGame says gamers who have purchased the title can apply for a full refund before August 20 -- or they can continue to play, though there’s no guarantee that the game will keep on running. All buyers will receive a 30-yuan (about US$4) WeGame coupon as compensation.
Monster Hunter: World is one of this year’s biggest gaming sensations. Since it launched on consoles earlier in January, over 8 million copies have been sold on PS4 and Xbox One.
