Another major company set its eye on UltiZero Games, as Tencent was confirmed to have acquired a minority stake in the studio. On the other hand, a bit of information was given on how the development of the long-awaited title is progressing.

UltiZero Games is also working on a PC version of the title. Finally, Ahmad noted that Tencent has closed several company acquisition and merger deals in recent months. This due to its interest in the market both in China and internationally.

“I currently have the support of Sony and will work with other developers. So it will be a temporary exclusive for PlayStation 4 and will have multiple weapons, “said the creator of Lost Soul Aside several months ago.
