In the past few hours, the increase in the shares of FromSoftware owned by Sony and Tencent has been formalized, which have gone up to 14% and 16% respectively: let’s find out all the details together
Elden Ring’s exorbitant success has made FromSoftware one of the most promising companies on the gaming scene. Thanks to the experience with the Dark Souls trilogy, Bloodborne and the atypical Sekiro, the company has refined its blade by creating a Souls Open World of exquisite workmanship. We talked about it in a more than exhaustive review, which you can find by clicking here, but it is always nice to be able to remember all the hours spent in what can now be considered the Opera Magna by Hidetaka Miyazaki. A very attractive company, therefore, for giants like Sony and Microsoft, and considering the great surprises that have fired at us in recent years (see, among many, Zenimax and Activision acquired by Microsoft) we wouldn’t be surprised if FromSoftware was specially guarded for a similar action.
Already in April, some rumors regarding its acquisition by Sony PlayStation had begun to spread on the net, only to slowly fall into oblivion. It is official news of the past few hours, however, that the house of PlayStation has increased its stake in FromSoftware, bringing them to 14.09%. Tencent, the Chinese giant that has been buying left and right lately, has also increased its share, bringing it to 16.25%. However, we remind you that the majority of the shares is always and in any case held by Kadokawa, who stands at 69.66%.
Sony buys another slice of FromSoftware together with Tencent
It must be admitted that FromSoftware’s intellectual properties, as well as its actual capabilities in the development of great video games, are today in the spotlight of many companies. While admitting the excellent work done with the works we mentioned earlier, especially Bloodborne, the company with Elden Ring has overcome the obstacle of the niche to throw themselves into the big world of the mainstream with arrogance. Recall that Elden Ring is still one of the most prominent titles in streaming on Twitch.
And this is how, therefore, Sony has increased its stake in FromSoftware, snatching another piece from Kadokawa. Who knows if, in the future, we will be able to announce a complete acquisition on these pages of TechGameWorld.com.
