Tencent now owns another company.

The Business Wire has reported that the Chinese Conglomerate Tencent has acquired the Back 4 Blood company, Turtle Rock Studios.

This acquisition comes not long after the successful launch of Back 4 Blood on Oct.12. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment published the game, and it served as a spiritual successor for the Left 4 Dead series.

Back 4 Blood is an online multiplayer game where a group of four players teams up to survive a hoard of zombies in a post-apocalyptic world. The game emphasizes teamwork, shooting, and lots of blood. Besides Back 4 Blood and Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock Studios were also involved with the development of Counterstrike and Evolve.
