Tencent expands with four new studios | Pocket Gamer.biz

Tech conglomerate Tencent’s subsidiary TiMi Studio Group has reorganized, splitting the TiMi J3 studio into three smaller teams and allowing TiMi to cover more bases in the FPS genre.

This adjustment would be the result of nearly a year of preparation, with the volume of staff to be reassigned being a factor in the time it took.

The three teams are named TiMi Y1, TiMi Y2 and TiMi Y3.

Responsibilities of TiMi

TiMi has amassed over a decade of experience building FPS games, working on titles like Call of Duty Mobile and CrossFire: Legends with various collaborators.

At present, Y1, Y2 and Y3 all develop FPS games for different fields.

According to Pandaily, TiMi Y2 will focus on creating self-developed multi-terminal titles around the world – currently working on a military shooter using Unreal Engine 4. No specific project details have yet been released.

TiMi Y3, on the other hand, is responsible for the development of CrossFire Mobile among other related versions.

TiMi Y1 supports games such as Call of Duty: Mobile, while integrating multi-dimensional capabilities in FPS games for the two aforementioned studios.

Besides Y1, Y2 and Y3, TiMi has also created TiMi G1, which will focus on creating original 3A products.

Last year, Call of Duty: Mobile racked up $1 billion in revenue, a 45% increase over 2020.
