Tencent has been active all over the industry for the past few years, developing free to play games like Arena of Valor, the upcoming Call of Duty: Mobile, and assisting updates for Niantic’s hit Pokemon Go. With these major projects and the full acquisition of Riot Games, the creator of the insanely popular League of Legends, Tencent is determined to make a large footprint in the Free to Play sector. What kind of title should we expect from the Pokemon Company and TIMI Studio? Let us know in the comments below.
