Diablo Immortal release in China postponed at the last minute

Diablo Immortal has already launched in many countries around the world, but has not yet appeared in its main market - China.
There the game was already supposed to be released later, and at the last moment the release was delayed indefinitely.Chinese Diablo Immortal was expected on June 23.
However, on June 19, the official page in China posted about the postponement:The development team is making various improvements to the game: adding support for a wider range of smartphone models, rendering the highest quality on more devices, many optimizations in terms of gameplay experience, network code and performance, and so on.
We believe the experience and the game itself will be better this way.To thank adventurers for their patience, we've prepared an exclusive gift of legendary gear, items and materials.
When Diablo Immortal officially launches, all players will be able to receive this gift in-game when they create a character.
In addition, we will make rewards for in-game activities more generous.Team Diablo Immortal[Addendum of July 21.
As we were prompted in the comments, the postponement of Diablo Immortal's release in the Asia-Pacific region (which usually includes China) was also reported on Blizzard's international website.
In contrast to the Chinese page, there is a new release date - July 7.] Postponing the launch four days before release because the game suddenly found problems with optimization and award balance - it sounds strange.
As noted by Asian market expert Daniel Ahmad, it's possible that the real reason is related to other news: June 15 in the Chinese social network Weibo froze the official page Diablo Immortal.According to media reports, the owners of the account have banned new posts, but left in place the old ones.
The reason for the blocking is not specified.
Rumor has it that on May 22 the Weibo page of Diablo Immortal was visited and quickly disappeared with the sentence \"Why doesn't the bear leave his post? \"This looks like a stone to Xí Jìnpíng, the head of China, whom critics call Winnie the Pooh.
Criticism of Xi Jinping on the Chinese side of the Internet is strictly censored.
It is therefore likely that the post about the bear on the Diablo Immortal page has attracted the attention of state authorities.However, this is only the unofficial version.
The official version does not contain any hints about the situation with the bear on Weibo.
