Platinum Games has announced today that they’ve partnered with Tencent and have received vital capital investment from the Chinese company. This will allow the teams to follow their ambitions including possibly moving into self publishing. Platinum Games will continue to remain independent. Here’s the full statement from the company:
We would like to announce we have received a capital investment from Tencent Holdings Limited as a basis for partnership. This partnership has no effect on the independence of our company, and we will continue operations under our current corporate structure.
We hope to use this capital to strengthen our foundation as a business and expand from game development into exploring self-publishing. We also hope that this partnership can give us a wider global perspective, while still creating high quality games that stay true to our name.
Thank you as always for your continued support. Please look forward to what we have in store.
