Chinese internet giant Tencent continues its push into the world of video games. The company has acquired a “major stake” in the Swedish game developer, 10 Chambers, a studio founded in 2015 by members of the Payday development team that released the sci-fi FPS GTFO as their first game in December 2019.
10 Chambers creative director Ulf Andersson said in a statement that Tencent is the right partner to help the company reach “new heights.”
“As we’re closing in on six years of development of GTFO, we’ve realized that our ambitious long-term vision for our studio will need more muscle,” Andersson said. “We needed to find a partner that gives us the creative freedom to reach these new heights, while at the same time support our long-term commitment to the GTFO community. For the future of the studio as a whole; it makes it even more exciting.”
