Tencent has quietly made its storefront, WeGame, available outside of China as WeGame X.
The website’s offering is very reduced, with only 30 games available (most of them from Chinese companies) at the time of writing.
Talking to Abacus, a Tencent’s spokesperson said: “WeGame X is a product WeGame is testing to serve its global users. We hope with the maturation of this product, we can bring more Chinese games overseas to cater to multiple gamer demographics.”
This is just the latest initiative from gaming giant Tencent to expand internationally, with recent announcements including a collaboration with Razer, among many others.
Tencent announced launched its WeGame store back in April 2017, rebranding its Tencent Games Platform with a clear intention to expand internationally.
