Platinum Games announced today that it has partnered with Tencent and has acquired a significant amount of money leased by a Chinese company. This will allow the parties to follow their wishes including including publishing them. Platinum Games will continue to govern itself. Here is the company's complete statement:
We would like to announce that we have received funding from Tencent Holdings Limited as a foundation for the partnership. This partnership has no impact on the independence of our company, and we will continue to operate under our current corporate structure.
We hope to use this city to strengthen our business base and expand from game development to self-discovery and self-publishing. We also hope that these relationships can give us a broader perspective of the world, while building high-quality games that stay true to our brand.
Thank you always for your continued support. Please look forward to what we have in store.
