Tencent Acquires Back 4 Blood Developer Turtle Rock Studios

Chinese tech giant Tencent has announced today that it has acquired the Back 4 Blood developer Turtle Rock Studios, but says it'll have no effect on that specific game — and the existing team will continue to run all studio operations.

Eddie Chan, Chief Strategy Officer of Tencent Games Global enthused that the company "can’t wait to see what comes next, and we’re excited to be part of their future.”

"We are huge fans of Turtle Rock’s games, especially their amazing approach to creating co-operative online games."

Meanwhile, Turtle Rock Studios President and General Manager Steve Goldstein explained that the deal "will help us create the kinds of ambitious games we dream of, while allowing us to retain our autonomy and independent spirit."

“We are all looking forward to joining the Tencent family of studios."
