Tencent Finalizes Deal to Acquire 1C Entertainment

Polish game development group 1C Entertainment SA said today it has been acquired by Tencent.

The two closed a deal reached in late November, in which Tencent agreed to take all shares previously owned by 1C Entertainment’s previous parent, 1C, giving it a majority stake in the Warsaw-headquartered company and all of its subsidiaries. The deal also stipulated that 1C Entertainment and all subsidiaries with “1C” in their names will be renamed within six months of the deal’s completion. Rebranding details will be communicated to the press and partners separately.

1C Entertainment said it looks forward to joining the Tencent family and expects to reap the benefits of numerous synergies between the two companies.

“We are truly excited by this deal. It is an amazing opportunity for 1CE to achieve our wildest dreams and aspirations in the video games business. Our vision and passion will be now backed by a leading global games company, and I am humbled by the unique chance of working together with Tencent and the other top creative minds that are part of its global ecosystem,” said Tomasz Nieszporski, 1C Entertainment management board member.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to work with the talented team at 1C Entertainment, supporting them as they embark on a new phase of growth,” said Tencent Games Global Chief Technology Officer Li Shen.
