It owns League of Legends developer Riot, Clash of Clans maker Supercell, 48% of Epic Games, and has stakes in a dozen other publishers and developers, including Activision Blizzard.

Tencent released PUBG Mobile for Android and iOS, and every Fortnight profit and license from the engine they get 48% of it all. Now they own a big stake in Ubisoft.

Something tells me this company will buy AMD.

If anything they will buy nvidia and amd so they can completely control the market.
DarkZV2Beta -No, because PS2 was garbage, and is the primary cause of the collapse of the Japanese game market in the mid 2000s. https://i.imgur.com/FMxcdHw.jpg

We really should not be allowing China (Tencent) to buy up all of our Companies here. This is just inviting a terrible future.
Japanese video games are trash.

not really up to us, unless there was a mass boycott which will never happen given how many people play the games they're involved in. and China has money, which is attractive to other publishers.
