NetEase Acquires Minority Stake In Quantic Dream


Chinese company NetEase has purchased a minority stake in Detroit: Become Human developer Quantic Dreams, infusing it with funds while still allowing it to remain independent. Quantic Dreams co-founder David Cage says that the studio plans to make games for multiple platforms, and not just for Sony, from here on out.

This move increases NetEase’s video game presence. In June the company purchased a minority stake in Bungie, and it’s working with Blizzard on the Diablo Immortal mobile game.

Reports of a toxic workplace at Quantic Dream don’t seem to have influenced NetEase’s decision. Last summer an ex-employee won an employment case against the developer (which is being appealed), with one of the allegations being that lewd and racist photoshopped images of its employees were allowed to be circulated within the company.
