TikTok Parent Wants to Sell Game Division to PUBG Mobile Owners

TikTok parent ByteDance is selling their gaming business unit. One of those interested in buying is Tencent, owner of many famous games including PUBG Mobile.

Currently ByteDance has reached the negotiation stage with Tencent, but so far has not reached an agreement, as quoted by Gamestation from Reuters, Tuesday (16/1/2024).

ByteDance and Tencent negotiated a sale involving a number of well-known games published by Nuverse, ByteDance’s gaming unit, for example Crystal of Atland and Earth: Revival.

In November 2023, ByteDance admitted that it would overhaul Nuverse and withdraw from the gaming business because they wanted to focus on their other core businesses. This decision comes five years after entering the gaming business, which currently has a global value of USD 185 billion.

Currently, ByteDance has stopped releasing new games and plans to divest the games that have already been launched. Previously they had been looking for potential buyers for Moonton, the company behind the popular game Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, which was also recently acquired by ByteDance in 2021.

Even though they had fierce competition in the gaming business, relations between ByteDance and Tencent have recently warmed up after Tencent often used ByteDance’s advertising network to promote their newest game entitled DreamStar.

Previously it was reported that last November there were several potential companies that wanted to buy Moonton. Including companies based in Saudi Arabia.

Moonton Technology was acquired in 2021 for USD 4 billion or around IDR 62.2 trillion. Shortly after the acquisition, the Chinese government set various strict regulations for the gaming industry, which caused the development of the gaming business in China to decline.

“Persija Esports will also expand to other game lines/divisions as part of our vision and mission to continue to participate and excel and make a positive contribution to the esports ecosystem in Indonesia,” concluded Persija Esports.

You must know about Paw Rumble, a game developed by Telkom which is praised by Google Play

Games made by the nation’s children are increasingly being recognized. This can be seen from the success of Indigo Game as Telkom’s incubator which successfully delivered its game, Paw Rumble, to the Google Play Best Game of 2023 award.

Winning the Google award, Paw Rumble is proof of the success of Telkom’s end-to-end support through the incubation program from Indigo Game. This game was developed by GrinSmile Studio and launched on July 12 2023 and then published by Nuon Games.

In publishing it, Nuon Games also collaborated with Dunia Games from Telkomsel as a co-publisher, so that it could reach a wider market, especially in Indonesia. Nuon Games is part of PT Nuon Digital Indonesia as a subsidiary of Telkom which operates in the digital entertainment content sector.

The First Indonesian Game To Enter The Google Play Awards

Telkom is committed to continuing to support and facilitate local game developers so they can produce innovative and competitive games, so they can continue to penetrate the global games industry,” said the CEO of Nuon Digital Indonesia Aris Sudewo in his written statement, Wednesday (20/12/2023).
