Recently, however, Epic Games The store has just announced on the official Weibo that it will recall all of them Watch Dogs 2 free that the Chinese gamers received.
The cause of the problem was that Chinese gamers took advantage of a bug in the platform to get Watch Dogs 2 for free. While the game was never released in the China region, that means itself. Epic Games also does not have the right to give this game to gamers in the country of billions of people, players in this country are forced to stay out of the event to receive free Watch Dogs 2.
At the same time, Epic Games also apologized to the publisher for the trouble caused by the bug, the company will withdraw the game from the accounts of Chinese players. Accounts receiving games in other countries will not be affected by this. Regarding the issue of locking the China region, Epic Games Store said that it is only a 3rd party, cannot decide this, all matters related to the operation of a game are decided by the publisher.
