Tencent has invested an undisclosed sum into the successful Liverpool-based creative and games studio, Milky Tea.

Tencent, an ISP based in China already has a prolific games portfolio including Riot Games, Epic Games, Supercell and Activision. Milky Tea meanwhile are currently continuing to develop their latest title, HyperBrawl Tournament, a "fast-paced and intense sports combat game" which is due for release on Steam and Nintendo Switch in early 2018.

"This partnership marks a turning-point in Milky Tea's history," said founder and managing director Jonathan Holmes. "The scale of it really hasn't hit home just yet, but we are all really proud to be part of the Tencent family and we couldn't ask for better partners. Everyone at Tencent has gone above and beyond our expectations to make this happen and from a personal point of view, it's a dream come true."

Amiqus are delighted to congratulate Jonathan and the team at Milky Tea, who have been a positive force in the Northwest creative and games development community for many years. Great going guys! We look forward to more stories of your success in the future.
