Tencent will leave full autonomy of creativity and operations across all aspects of the studio, including projects, talent, publishing rights, and IP ownership in our hands while opening doors around the world. The partnership is oriented on supporting the studio on long-term growth and building a best-in-class development team.

“In two years we’ve tripled our dev team and built a brand new IP from scratch. Our first franchise, only months ahead of launch, is attracting attention from all over the industry. Announced via IGN Showcase and featured at The Game Awards [email protected] demo event, we’re aspiring for BLACKTAIL to be one of 2022’s most creative next-gen premium indie experiences. Current industry support and recent Tencent involvement indicate that there is ground for future developments in that particular genre. This is still the beginning of our journey.” Bartosz Kaproń
