Heroes of Newerth – Tencent Games revealed as China publisher
In what is supposedly a shock announcement, Tencent Games, China’s largest online gaming company, announced that it will be publishing S2 Games’ Heroes of Newerth. Tencent Games currently has League of Legends as its main MOBA title, with SMITE and Battle of the Gods coming.
For Strife, the new MOBA from S2 Games, its China publisher will be YY Inc instead of Tencent Games, which is pretty puzzling. It seems Tencent is hell-bent on taking on its closest competitor in the MOBA genre, Dota 2, which is being operated in China by Perfect World.
