Apple removes more than 2,500 games from the China App Store

SensorTower announced on Wednesday that Apple (AAPL) removed more than 2,500 games from the China App Store in the first week of July. The move came after the U.S. tech giant closed a loophole to comply with China’s license requirements.

Apple set a deadline for revenue-generating games to submit government-issued license numbers that would allow in-app purchases. However, it was unclear why the company allowed the loophole to exist for so long.

“It’s possible these games will be available again in future, however, but have been gone from the storefront for more than five days,” SensorTower’s Mobile Insights Head Randy Nelson stated.

The games that were removed by Apple generated a combined $34.7 Million lifetime gross revenue in China while it accumulated more than 133 Million downloads in the country.

Some of the games that were removed include Supercell’s farming hit “Hay Day,” “Nonstop Chuck Norris” from Flaregames, and “Solitaire” from Zynga.
