Platinum Games announced a new partnership with Tencent Holdings to receive capital investment in order to further explore self-publishing options.
Here’s a message from Platinum Games President and CEO Kenichi Sato on the new partnership with Tencent Holdings:
We would like to announce we have received a capital investment from Tencent Holdings Limited as a basis for partnership. This partnership has no effect on the independence of our company, and we will continue operations under our current corporate structure.
We hope to use this capital to strengthen our foundation as a business and expand from game development into exploring self-publishing. We also hope that this partnership can give us a wider global perspective, while still creating high quality games that stay true to our name.
Thank you as always for your continued support. Please look forward to what we have in store.
