Dreadnought Creators Yager Gets Tencent Investment

It seems like every week these days we’re talking about a new Tencent investment and well, this week is no different. Yager, the creators of Dreadnought, and Spec Ops: The Line is the latest to receive a strategic investment from Tencent. The amount involved in the investment hasn’t been disclosed but we do know that the developer will retain its independence. That doesn’t mean much however as that is pretty standard for Tencent’s investments.

Yager has said that the capital from this investment will be used to strengthen its development and publishing opportunities. This includes a few unannounced projects.

“Tencent is not only the world’s leading games company but also a prolific investor with a stellar track record,” said Yager CEO Timo Ulmann. “We’re humbled to join the line-up of Tencent partners which reads like a games industry Who’s Who. We’re confident that this will greatly enhance the scope of our business, not just by getting access to Tencent’s network and resources but by tapping the vast industry know-how Tencent possesses.”

At the moment Yager is currently working on Dreadnought and The Cycle, which is currently in Season 2 and available for free in the Epic Store.
