Chinese website, is reporting the first five games for WCG 2009. The World Cyber Games, Inc., recently renamed from International Cyber Marketing, was founded in the year 2000 and have been the global organizer of the World Cyber Games for nine years.

Last year's tournament was located Cologne, Germany and saw competitors compete in ten PC games, including StarCraft, CS 1.6, and WarCraft 3: TFC. The tournament also featured four Xbox 360 games.

With the WCG 2009 event slated to take place later this year in Chengdu, China, the Chinese website is reporting the first five games to be played at the tournament.

Counter Strike 1.6 (PC)
StarCraft (PC)
WarCraft 3: The Frozen Throne (PC)
Virtua Fighter 5 (XBOX360)
Guitar Hero: World Tour (XBOX360)

Note that this same list can't be found anywhere on the official site for the World Cyber Games . I'm a bit surprised they didn't pick Street Fighter IV or Soulcalibur IV. That said, perhaps it would be possible that they picked more than one fighting game? We'll have to wait and see until the official WCG site confirms this news.
