Default Re: Chinese Goverment rules that StarCraft: Ghost promotes "Feudal Superstition"

China once banned bibles for similar reasons. (Too much crime, magic, etc in them.)

However, I think people are overreacting over China's overreaction. China is only banning the name, Blizzard can rename it there. (It's stupid to force a name change, but it's not a huge deal. Blizzard can use whatever word they used for "ghost" there, or whatever that invisible unit in Warcraft III was named. I haven't heard about WC III being banned in China.)

Blizzard wanted to name an esports brand "StarCraft: Ghost"; while Ghost has probably been canned, esports haven't been.

Blizzard could be remaking Ghost. I find this hard to believe, since the novel is coming out at the end of the year, but it is a slight possibility.
