Blizzard and NetEase have announced an agreement that will bring StarCraft II, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, and to China.

The contract will run for three years from the release of StarCraft II, which still has no solid date, obviously.

“NetEase has been a leader in the Chinese game market, and we look forward to working with them to deliver high-quality entertainment to Chinese gamers,” said Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime.

“This partnership is a sign of our continued commitment to our players in China and to the local industry.”
