Aaryn Flynn’s Inflexion studio is now owned by Tencent

Inflexion Games is a studio made up of former BioWare developers, including former BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn, now part of Tencent. The Chinese conglomerate’s acquisition of the studio was announced by UK-based tech firm Improbable, Inflexion’s original parent company, which said its sale of the studio was its new strategy for “Metaverse Events” part of the focus.

“While we are focused on accelerating the metaverse, we want to ensure that games developed by our in-house studios benefit from the support of publishers who have a leading track record in bringing games to market,” Improbable CEO Herman Narula Say. “As a result, we cannot expect to find a better partner than Tencent for Inflexion Games and Nightingale.”
