Tencent has more money than God and owns seemingly a piece of every part of video games, but that might not be the case going forward. The conglomerate is reportedly in negotiations with the United States to keep its holdings in United States’ companies, specifically its ownership of Epic Games and Riot Games.
Epic announced today that a slate of new non-gaming apps are now available on the Epic Games Store. The most interesting new app added is the indie games storefront Itch.io, potentially giving the thousands of smaller games on their store a huge new audience of EGS users.
According to a report in Dot Esports, Alienware, the high-performance gaming PC brand owned by Dell, has severed ties with Riot Games over Riot CEO Nicolo Laurent’s ongoing sexual harassment investigation and other public relations concerns.
