Rumors these days are becoming weirder and weirder. Sometimes just lazier too.

They are not making just military stuff, but all sorts of simulations for infrastructure and architecture companies. Their tech demos sometimes offer a glimpse of this content.

I doubt it, but even if it were true; it wouldn't be worrisome beyond the possibility of a bigger focus on the mobile market (going from what it looks to be Tencent's main target, even when they are everywhere).

I think it's fake. I think Tencent isn't that dumb.

I think it's more likely to see MS buying them and announcing the day after Crysis 4 with a logo CG teaser (not mentioned in the trailer but the game would be released in 2026).

Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft, pls buy crytek.
I could see MS insterested on it to have some extra Game Pass games and to support their shotter and game engine teams. But not sure why Sony or Nintendo would be interested on them.

Luckily we live in the US, with US corporations and a government that has never, and continues to not, spy on it's citizens and customers.

That's not lost on me, trust me. Hell, the FBI has admitted they play games like World of Warcraft to spy on chats and make sure nobody is going to do any "raids" on real life targets. Pitiful really.
