Tencent has bought a minority stake on Playtonic. Playtonic is a UK developer and publisher, and they are the ones behind Yooka-Laylee. Because of this investment, GamesIndustry says that Playtonic will be able to “more than double its headcount” and “expand to three development teams”.
It is also going to help the studio create some more games. Although details about these games were very little, it was mentioned that one of the games will be a sequel to Yooka-Laylee, which released in 2017. It will not be a sequel to the most recent game to release in the franchise, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, which was released in 2019.
