Diablo 3 joins Blizzard's lineup in China

Diablo 3 will launch in China as part of a licensing agreement between Blizzard Entertainment and Chinese company NetEase, Inc., the developer announced today.

Pricing and platform details have not yet been announced.

Diablo 3 launched in 2012; the game has since made its way to consoles and added major expansion Reaper of Souls. The game is the fifth Blizzard title to make its way to China, along with Hearthstone, Heroes of Warcraft, Heroes of the Storm, StarCraft 2 and World of Warcraft.

"We're very excited that with our effort, all five of Blizzard Entertainment's game series will be delivered to Chinese players," NetEase CEO and founder William Ding said."We'll continue to work closely with Blizzard to prepare for a smooth Diablo 3 launch in China so that local gamers can start playing this epic adventure as soon as possible."

The game has sold through more than 15 million copies across all available platforms; it sold over 3.5 million copies in its first 24 hours. For more on Diablo 3, check out our review.
