PlatinumGames Makes A Deal with Tencent
Bad news for fans of PlatinumGames, the creators of games like Bayonetta, Wonderful 101, Madworld, Vanquish, and more. Tencent, a large Chinese company that holds a large part of other major Western video game companies (like Epic games) has made a "capital investment" into PlatinumGames.
PlatinumGames states they hope to use this to strengthen their foundation as a business. However, we've seen Tencent do some not so great things in the past.
I had hoped to see a different company invest in PlatinumGames, like Nintendo. Nintendo and PlatinumGames have made some great video games together, including Bayonetta 2, Astra Chain, and Wonderful 101.
