Tencent has acquired Inflexion Games

Tencent has acquired Inflexion Games from Improbable, all involved companies announced this week.

While the news that Tencent has acquired Inflexion Games is seemingly a done deal, finer details for the new acquisition were not shared.

Inflexion Games is based out of Edmonton, Canada, where CEO Aaryn Flynn (Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and Star Wars: The Old Republic) will continue to lead operations as the studio develops its first game, the previously announced shared-world survival crafting title Nightingale. The new acquisition will add Nightingale to Tencent’s lineup of forthcoming games under their new global gaming brand – Level Infinite.

“As announced at the end of January, and while we focus our efforts on accelerating in the metaverse, we want to make sure that the games developed by our internal studios benefit from the support of publishers with leading track records of bringing games to market. So we couldn’t have hoped to have found a better partner than Tencent for Inflexion Games and for Nightingale,” said Improbable CEO, Herman Narula. “We look forward to our continued collaboration with Aaryn and the Inflexion Games team as they  explore potential use of our technology offerings for Nightingale and beyond..”

“The highly talented team at Inflexion Games has a proven track record of developing engaging universes that combine compelling action with great gameplay. The initial reaction to Nightingale has been incredibly positive and we look forward to supporting Inflexion in realising its vision for this and future titles,” said Pete Smith, VP of Partnerships for Tencent Games Global.

“It’s a privilege to work with the Tencent family,” said Aaryn Flynn, CEO of Inflexion Games. “The depth of knowledge and expertise that Tencent’s global teams provide, and their empowerment of our team’s independence and creative spirit, offer an invaluable opportunity for collaboration. We look forward to working together on Nightingale’s Early Access launch later this year.”
