Fortnite says it will shut down service in China later this month.

According to the official Fortnite China website, the game will shut down on Nov. 15th.  No reason was given for the decision.

Fortnite launched in China in 2018 with a few changes, including the removal of ‘microtransactions’ and some cosmetic changes such as the removal of skulls.

Why do you think Fortnite is shutting down in China?  How much of an impact does the Chinese market have on the video game industry?
