Hong Kong financial news portal Finet (8317.HK) has officially named former T2CN founder and CEO Li Yanqing as the president of its recently established Shanghai-based game company, China Game, and Xiao Yongqi, previously with Finet, as the CEO. Finet has also unveiled the schedule of China Game in launching three 3D MMORPGs: "Warage", "Tang Dyanasty II", and "Swordsman-Plus", among which "Warage" is planned to begin closed beta testing on May 13. T2CN has been restructured to function solely as an online game developer, while China Game will be the operator of all in-house developed or licensed games.
