To know that you know what you know and to know that you do not know what you do not know, that is knowledge - Confucious
I like gaming, sports, anime and gardening/nature! And always trying to learn more about the world.
If you thought KR hated us, just wait until we encounter China - they really really hate us. Maximum prejudice.
But they do have an NA branch. Bad news, they are located in SF and not LA.¯\_(ツ)_/¯
But they could end up keeping Nexon as a subsidiary. Actually I think this would be more likely the case.
"One of the biggest publishers of free-to-play online games in China, including Dungeon Fighter and ArchAge. Tencent Holdings also owns Riot Games, nearly half of Epic Games, and 12% of Activision Blizzard. Tencent is currently the world's highest-earning video game company."
Like Disney, Tencent is more of a media company, like Disney, but they have a much more experience in regards to video games than Disney. If Tencent takes over, of course one would have the same fears of what would happen if Disney takes over. These are huge companies that are involved in so many industries, they basically toss money around for sport. (Not that they actually do that). But they're much bigger public companies than Nexon and they actually have to satisfy investors. A benefit from these big corporations is they have the necessary marketing advantages if they find it worth investing in. Tencent like many larger Chinese companies are able to hoard up a lot of public advertising space worldwide, just look at last year's FIFA World Cup. Bought up all the electronic advert board space. As the world begin to focus more on digital products and video games are becoming a large core of entertainment, I can expect Tencent to become improved in the industry in that regards. Them having the experience in the field is a bonus as long as games don't become casualties to the evolving industry. And then you also have to worry about different regulations that governments around the world are trying to impose, such as the one in this thread. Growing conflicts to control the growing and evolving digital world could become messy in future years.
