The Chinese tech company Tencent has announced yet another game developer acquisition, and this time it’s Turtle Rock Studios’ parent company, Slamfire.
This means that Turtle Rock will also become part of Tencent. The announcement noted that the studio will still retain its independent operations out of California, and the existing team who run studio operations, led by co-founders Phil Robb and Chris Ashton, will continue.
“We are all looking forward to joining the Tencent family of studios,” said Steve Goldstein, president and general manager of Turtle Rock Studios. “Tencent’s outstanding partners, global reach, deep knowledge of gaming and unprecedented support will help us create the kinds of ambitious games we dream of, while allowing us to retain our autonomy and independent spirit.”
