Ubisoft has found its golden hen

Tencent has decided to continue investing in Western developer and publisher teams. After Activision Blizzard, the Chinese giant has turned its attention to Ubisoft, a French Canadian group that has several IPs of great interest, such as Assassin's Creed and Rainbow Six.

Ubisoft has struggled to remain independent over the years, but has always managed to resist hostile takeovers. In 2017, the Vivendi group attempted to climb to the top of the company, with various key figures such as Guillemot himself and the internal development teams trying to defend the independence of the publisher and developer. Successful operation, but it is not clear if the group will be able to really remain alone or not.

NEWS: Tencent is NOT buying Ubisoft. But it is investing heavily in the company, announcing a new € 300 million (about the same in $$) investment — 49.9% stake — in Guillemot Bros, the company run by Ubisoft's co-founders that has the largest stake in Ubisoft.
