He also recently teamed up with JJ Abrams to launch Bad robot gamesand has the rights to publish PUBG in China, in addition to being trades around 10% of Bluehole’s shares.
Today, we also know that ‘WeGame’, Tencent’s steam-style platform in China, plans to go to the rest of the world and land for the first time in Hong Kong. This offer is designed to reach out to players outside of China and to promote Chinese games abroad.
At the moment, it looks like the Tencent platform will not be a rival to Steam in the event, as WeGame only features 220 titles currently, according to the South China Morning Post in an interview with gamesindustry.biz, something very different from the catalog account for the Valve platform, even though it is also full of authentic cartoons.
So far, neither WeGame nor Steam in China has an announced launch date.
