Tencent buys 10% of Sumo Group

Chinese giant purchasing 15 million shares from established investor Perwyn

Sumo Group, an owner of Sumo Digital, has become the latest video game developer in which Tencent has taken a stake. The Chinese organization has entered a concurrence with Perwyn, a setup speculator in the Group and its Crackdown 3 studio, to secure 15 million offers, which will give Tencent a 9.96% enthusiasm for the engineer.

“We are charmed that Tencent have decided to get a shareholding in the organization, and we anticipate working with Tencent to investigate co-advancement openings.”

In the wake of offering its offers to Tencent, Perwyn’s advantage will be diminished to 17.38%.

“We are happy to put resources into Sumo Group, a main autonomous co-advancement studio. We anticipate supporting Sumo’s development and investigating joint efforts with the Company to bring progressively intelligent diversion encounters to worldwide spectators.”
