New capital will further grow development and publishing capabilities for the Berlin-based game studio behind The Cycle, Spec Ops: The Line and Dreadnought.
Berlin-based game development studio YAGER has today reported it has received a strategic minority investment by Tencent. As YAGER has moved into self-publishing, this fresh capital will be used to strengthen the company’s development and publishing activities for its current title, the competitive quest shooter The Cycle, as well as other upcoming projects.
“Tencent is not only the world’s leading games company but also a prolific investor with a stellar track record. We’re humbled to join the line-up of Tencent partners, which reads like a games industry Who’s Who,” said YAGER CEO Timo Ullmann. “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.”
Tencent’s investment will leave YAGER fully independent – all operations will continue under the studio’s current corporate structure and leadership.
