Tencent is continuing to restrict the amount of time Chinese children can spend gaming. The company recently implemented a strict 14-hour limit on young gamers in the country as they make their way through a four-week winter break from schools. Tencent also warned against adults letting children use their accounts to bypass these rules.
“Elementary school kids have had their game time restricted for an entire semester. And now they’re eager to indulge in some gaming fun during their winter break and the upcoming Spring Festival,” Tencent said in a blog post. “Guess what? For this winter break, you can only play for a maximum of 14 hours!”
A calendar signifying the pre-approved days for gaming has been released by Tencent. Between January 17th and February 15th, only 14 days have been approved for gaming, according to the calendar. This includes Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and the week-long Spring Festival, which begins on January 31st.
