Tencent game developers and TiMi Studio Group will present the latest Pokemon games. The Comicbook page, Monday, July 22 2019 reports that the announcement marks the latest attempt to enter the Chinese market.
Tencent is one of the largest gaming companies in the world, and TiMi Studio Group scored several big hits, including the Arena of Valor (AOV) and Call of Duty Mobile. There is no more information about potential game platforms or release schedules, but the possibility of a new project is mobile games.
Pokemon companies have made some major progress in China in recent years. One of them is adding Chinese language choices to the game and working with Chinese companies, Alibaba to distribute Pokemon official merchandise.
In addition, Tencent occasionally releases games specifically for the Chinese market, so it is possible that new games will not reach America or Europe. Tencent has not been distributing AOV games internationally for years, despite achieving extraordinary popularity in China and generating billions of dollars in revenue.
The Pokemon company has made a big push to mobile games this year as a secondary pillar of its business. While still relying on the Pokemon Sword & Shield game, they have also released various mobile games including Pokemon Go, Pokemon Rumble Rush and Pokemon Quest.
The Pokemon company is also working with Japanese game developer DeNA to release Pokemon Masters, which could be another big mobile game released later this year.
