History of the Tencent Appstore

Founded in 1998, Tencent is one of China’s largest and most globally successful tech companies. Their subsidiaries – which include Activision Blizzard, Epic Games, Glu Mobile, and numerous others – specialize in everything from Internet-related services and products, to gaming and entertainment, to artificial intelligence and general technology.

Indeed, not only is Tencent the world's largest gaming company, they are also one of the world's largest social media companies and one of the world's largest venture capital firms and investment corporations.
