EA and Ubisoft veteran Scott Warner will be studio director for Tencent's first AAA operation in the US
Can't wait to find out what their first game will be so I can not buy it. Tencent should not be allowed to operate in the USA in any form.
Tencent in a nutshell: Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight? Brain: The same thing we do every night, Pinky - try to take over the world!
Damn that show was genius
Does anyone have a strange feeling that tencent might make a console someday 🤔
Very possible. They are the biggest gaming company in the world after all. But I think they are more focused on mobile gaming. A handheld maybe? Or a hybrid like the Switch. Only time will tell.
EA just backed a firm that collaborates with a former Stassi to work on its PR efforts. Tencent may be CCP but the problem spreads out further than China now.
It says a EA veteran, not EA the company
Tencent is already in the US: https://www.google.com/maps...
Never trust the chinese.
We're all doomed
Because it's Tencent and they want more of a foothold in America. Don't be surprised if anything that comes out of this studio has a lot of spyware on it.
Laws. They're making sure to tuck in every trash they create inside.
No thank you
Oh no the Chinese company that nobody knows anything about. They’re really scary. The world will end if they set up shop in my country! They’ll steal everything from us all!!! /s
We know enough not to want them in the USA or in gaming.
They are already in the US. They own shares in Universal , Activision blizzard, tesla.... Etc
"Oh no the Chinese company that nobody knows anything about." Sounds like you're projecting bub. Always that one edgelord in the comments going against the grain.
No it’s just funny watching the propaganda machine fully at work when you’re an outsider to that countries politics. Please tell me what you know about them. Other than “rich Chinese company = state organised spy’s” Ever wonder why it’s only the people of ‘Murica that have this idea. The rest of the world watches on in amusement. The rest of us are like it’s just a Chinese corporation, so what, get over it! Wanna talk about dangerous corporations that can’t explain their wealth legitimately. Take a look in your own back yard! If you actually do some proper research they’re an investment company that seems to be the only company within the top 3 richest corporations in the world that look like they make their money legitimately for what it’s worth. Tencent opening its doors in the USA is the least of your worries.
I'm just curious what company your talking about, so I can take a look into it.
Yeah, they record the data on chinese people they gather on WeChat and give it to the Chinese police for example. Right, they are truly a legitimate corporation for sure. I'm Hungarian and all my friends in Hungary who know about Tencent don't want anything to do with them and don't want it in Hungary. They are a spy organization for the CCP like it or not and they censor everyone they can. They are a huge problem. Do we have bigger issues? Sure we do. But that doesn't mean we can't talk about Tencent because you love them so much. Keep protecting a Chinese spy corporation. I'm sure you will get a lot of good social points on your social card in China. You may even be allowed to travel if you are a good boy like this commrade.
These kids talk as if USA companies were any more trustworthy than tencent
Who said that US companies are saints? So just because US companies are shady that means it's ok to let a Chinese spy company into the US? What kind of thinking is that?
how can you not have heard of tencent??
A simple wikipedia search will do Many of Tencent's software and services are remarkably similar to those of competitors. The founder and chairman, Huateng "Pony" Ma, famously said, "[To] copy is not evil." A former CEO and president of SINA.com, Wang Zhidong, said, "Pony Ma is a notorious king of copying." Jack Ma of Alibaba Group stated, "The problem with Tencent is the lack of innovation; all of their products are copies." In 2015, security testing firms AV-Comparatives, AV-TEST and Virus Bulletin jointly decided to remove Tencent from their software whitelists. The Tencent products supplied for testing were found to contain optimisations that made the software appear less exploitable when benchmarked but actually provided greater scope for delivering exploits. Additionally, software settings were detrimental to end-users protection if used. Qihoo was later also accused of cheating, while Tencent was accused of actively gaming the anti-malware tests. Lastly all of Tencents blogging and social media platforms have been and are used by the state to monitor and censor its own citizens. You sound like a Wumao nationalist
will be good to follow and monitor such that i dont accidently buy a game from them
****ing hell. They already stole Kojima production's co-founder Ken Imaizumi.
Chinese Communist Party Corporation* Starts new studio. It will most likely be propaganda but is it any worse than the trash made by our own California based corporations?
What happens when kids play their games and decide to jump off roof tops to see if they will come back to life? Will they throw their developers under the bus again, and take no responsibility? https://au-news-yahoo-com.c...
Chinese front group. I had no idea they had such a huge stake in epic games.
Can't say I'm surprised, nor will I be surprised when their first game has a Winnie the Pooh mod.
Keep that garbage out of the US!
That's super unfortunate.
AAA MMO with micro-transactions and made using UE4 or 5. Yep, that's about it.
Watch how a digital version of a Corona virus suddenly appears that start bricking all of that are connected to the internet. Honestly at this point anything Chinese need to be curbed and manufacturing brought home
Hate it or not, theyre basically the disney/apple of gaming atm. Theyll take the world by storm.
It is funny how a communist corporation is expanding faster than capitalist ones 🤣🤣🤣 29315;
