Since the dawn of esports in the 1990s, there have been discussions about people engaged in the industry and whether they should be considered as professionals. Today, there is no trace of doubt that they should, but there is always a lag between the real-world changes and governmental officials catching up. It seems like China is about to recognize people working and playing in the esports field as professionals.

China Employment Training Technical Instruction Center is about to expand the roster of official professions with 15 new entries that belong in the field of esports. Those include the occupations of a player, team manager and even the more obscure ones like artificial intelligence engineer (I guess the developers at might get a new perspective at their occupations).

The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security of China supervised the process of selection of the preliminary list of the newly recognized professions.

China has always been a formidable force in international esports. This country has been producing world champions since the early days of WarCraft 3, and even now it has solid competitors in Dota 2, League of Legends and other competitive games. The Chinese players and other people involved in esports are about to enter a new official status.
