I don't know where this kind of speculative economic news goes so I put it here. If EA gets gobbled up it might finally stop killing franchises. I want Maxis back. Simcity 4 still hasn't been surpassed. No, Cities skylines is a city designer, it is not a challenging and accurate city simulator like simcity 4 which models a city with many more layers.
Tencent mostly develops gacha mobile games and mmos so i am not sure how Tencent would be an upgrade for any development company. Dear god, how can their be a developer worse than EA i am not sure but I can't really say anything positive about Tencent. I don't even know any good games from Tencent. A lot of Tencent portfolio is basically games that they purchased or own stakes in now after they become popular. At least i guess they don't destroy games like EA does so perhaps Tencent is better in that regard than EA.
Although as a developer of technology and other things besides games, Tencent seems to be an okay company.
Although there is also similar question as to many other Chinese companies. Why do we allow Tencent operate freely why in China European and US comapnies need to partner with Tecent to sell games. But then again, there is already a trade conflict going and games is one of the more irrelevant categories i guess.
