Tencent Acquires Sumo Digital, XCOM: Legends, Rainbow Six Extraction Delayed | Gaming News






Introduction

Hey everyone, welcome to another edition of the daily gaming news. Here I'll be discussing all the latest goings-on in the gaming industry, from new releases to game announcements and everything in between. So without further ado, let's get started!

Tencent Acquires Sumo Digital

Tencent, who is the publisher behind such online games as PUBG Mobile, who I seem to be reporting on a lot lately, have acquired Sumo Digital, which is a British game developer behind Little Big Planet, and they bought it for $1.27 billion which is £900,000,000. So it seems like Tencent have got money to burn and they're looking to expand because just a couple of days ago we reported on Tencent trying to take over some of their rivals in China. It's interesting to see that.

XCOM: Legends

And the next bit of news for today, the next or the newest XCOM game if you're into the XCOM franchise is a free-to-play mobile game, so the game is called XCOM Legends and you can download it in some territories. I haven't looked at it yet, but if you're into that style of gameplay, then know that the next XCOM game is on mobile

Rainbow Six Extraction Delayed

And then last bit of news for today. Ubisoft has delayed Rainbow Six Extraction until Jan 2022* and that comes after Riders Republic was delayed until October. I don't mind game delays if it means higher quality at the end of it.

Conclusion

That's all for my roundup of the latest gaming news. What do you think? Are any of these stories big deals in your opinion? Let me know by leaving a comment on the video. And don't forget to check back tomorrow for more exciting gaming news!
