Sharkmob was founded two years ago in Malmö, Sweden, by a group of industry veterans from Ubisoft and IO Interactive.
“Sharkmob’s creative and passionate team has a proven track record of developing triple-A titles which involves open world setting and various gameplays" said Steven Ma, Senior Vice President of Tencent.
"We look forward to more exciting innovation for game-lovers by combining Sharkmob’s development capabilities with Tencent’s technologies and expertise."

Support from Tencent’s incredible group of game teams will allow us to fully pursue our passion of bringing great gaming experiences to as many players as possible.”, said Fredrik Rundqvist, CEO of Sharkmob.
