Tencent was the public company with the highest revenue from games in fiscal year 2016. When excluding hardware, the Chinese giant outpunched Sony and Microsoft by some margin with total turnover of 10.2 billion U.S. dollars. Tencent has been investing heavily in game companies.
In 2011 it bought a majority stake in Riot, the developer of League of Legends ( the most played game in the world right now). Other key investments include a share of the company third on this list, Activision Blizzard (Call of Duty, World of Warcraft), 84 percent of Supercell (Clash of Clans) and a 330 million dollar slice of Epic Games, developers of the ubiquitous Unreal Engine.
