Tencent to Shut Down WeGame in Two Months Under Tight Regulation

The mobile version of WeGame, the video game portal that was Tencent Holdings’ answer to Steam, will cease operations in two months, in a fresh sign that business prospects in the world’s largest gaming market have become bleaker under Beijing’s tightened scrutiny.

WeGame stopped accepting new user registrations on Tuesday, and people will no longer be able to download the app from July 15.
