Now that Blizzard has ended their contract with NetEase and caused Blizzard Games to potentially leave China, players are facing the grim reality that they might not be able to play their favorite games in the future, e.g. World of Warcraft.

However, at this very moment, Steam China posted an ambiguous photo of Steam CEO Gabe Newell playing World of Warcraft on the Chinese social network Bilibili.

As for now, there is no further information being shared from Steam China.

In addition, Steam China is NOT Steam. It is a platform co-developed by Valve and Perfect World, and is only operating in China.

Update: Steam China has deleted this post.
