Chinese online game and portal operator NetEase.com has recently reported the latest transition situation of World of Warcraft and said that upon the completion of the transition, non-activated recharge cards of the game will be expired.
NetEase.com, which has replaced The9 as the new Chinese operator for the online game World of Warcraft developed by Blizzard Entertainment, has reminded Chinese users of World of Warcraft that they should use these unactivated recharge cards as soon as possible if they have any left.
The9 has also revealed to local Chinese media that its transition and compensation plan for non-activated recharge cards of World of Warcraft will be published soon. At present, The9 has stopped the sales of recharge cards of World of Warcraft. The company told local media that its transition and compensation plan has basically been decided and it is expected to be published around June 1, 2009. However, The9 said the details of the plan are currently not available.
According to the agreement between Blizzard Entertainment and The9, their contract on World of Warcraft will expire on June 7, 2009 and the operating rights of the game will then be transferred to rival NetEase.com.
