Techland, the developer behind the first-person zombie title Dying Light, has gained a majority shareholder in Chinese conglomerate Tencent.

Announced via a blog post by CEO Pawel Marchewka, Techland will reportedly “retain full ownership of our IPs, maintain creative freedom, and continue to operate in the way we believe is right.” However, the company believes that “the best and boldest dreams can only be achieved by working side by side with like-minded friends and strong partners.” Marchewka will also continue to serve as CEO.

Formed in 1991, Techland has produced titles like Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger and Dead Island before gaining significant recognition as the developer of Dying Light and its sequel, Dying Light 2: Stay Human. Techland hopes its partnership with Tencent will enable it to make Dying Light the “ultimate zombie gaming experience” for gamers as it furthers development of its next open world action RPG.

Dying Light: Definitive Edition released for the Nintendo Switch in 2021 and scored a solid 8/10 in our review. Meanwhile, a cloud version of its sequel was announced to be released alongside its release on other platforms, but was subsequently delayed.
