WoW WOTLK Denied by Chinese Government
Industry sources are claiming that WoW's second expansion Wrath of the Lich King has failed to obtain a publication license from the Chinese regulatory bodies for a second time.
WoW's Chinese operator, The9, submitted an updated copy of the expansion pack to China's regulatory body shortly after the Chinese New Year, removing specific content such as "Death Knights" from the game to help ensure it would pass approval, but it was once again rejected. Even though The9 had removed some potentially objectionable content, over 10 additional items were listed as reasons for failing the approval process.
Blizzard recently removed a link to the Chinese version of the game from its official WoW website.
