A recent announcement from the Chinese National Press and Publication states that minors will only be allowed to play online video games from 8-9pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. This of course, implies that minors in China will no longer be able to play games during weekdays.

The statement orders all online games in the region to not provide online services to minors during other hours, even on a guest account. Those refusing to comply with these rules and regulations will be dealt with in an official capacity, according to the original statement.

This comes after China imposed certain restrictions on online gaming in 2019, which prohibited minors from logging on to online games after 10pm. Many video game companies seem to be fed up with this increased strictness, and giants such as Tencent and NetEase have been continually looking out for partnerships and opportunities to create products with a global demand.
