Tencent Invests in Platinum

Platinum Games announces they are entering into a limited partnership with Chinese tech giant Tencent Holdings. Here's word from Platinum's President and CEO Kenichi Sato on what this means to this Japanese developer of Bayonetta and Nier: Automata:
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.

Anytime Tencent is involved in any investment, means you just sold your soul.

It is much wiser to sell your soul to US investment groups and hedge funds!

If you sell out, you sell out.

Yeah, imperfect Democracy vs Authoritarian dictatorship. All the same, sure.
meh
money vs money
At least they didn't sell out to EA Games, because if they did, they'd be shut down within two years.
