Hot take: Tencent is the best company to acquire any company. If MS, Google, Sony, or Amazon acquires anyone, there is no doubt that their games will be exclusive.
Tencent has less cash than Sony, so I don't really understand the reason people were saying 'no way Sony can buy TakeTwo', and 'Sony can't afford them'....
When Tencent had like 10 billion less than Sony in cash and Sony has very little debt too.
Anyway, I think Tencent is after Pearl Abyss in Korea.
Tencent makes more money from gaming than any other company in the world. And if I'm not wrong, in 2019 the whole Tencent corporation made $58B of revenue, $15B of net income and had $147B in assets. They don't need money from anyone else.If Tencent needs money to buy a company, the chinese ccp will print it fresh for them xD
Why should the POTUS stop buying a publicly traded company that isn't a market leader?Will the President of the US allow this?
Tencent owns Riot (League of Legends), Funcom, Digital Extremes, Spash Damage, 40% of Epic, 20% of Marvelous (who also owns the Data East IPs), and the 5% of Ubisoft, Activision Blizzard and Paradox, and invested in Platinum Games, Yagger or even Reddit. They already are pretty diversified beyond F2P/MMO and mobile.Then your in for a big surprise. Tencent is not joking and they want to diversify from the MMO genre. T2, Blizzard, EA or any big company like that is a prey for them. They made so much money, nobody is safe.
