The existing Turtle Rock team will continue to run the studio operations even after the Tencent acquisition. Steve Goldstein, the president and manager of Turtle Rock Studios, had this to say about the news:

“Tencent’s outstanding partners, global reach, deep knowledge of gaming and unprecedented support will help us create the kinds of ambitious games we dream of, while allowing us to retain our autonomy and independent spirit.”

Goldstein also said that they are excited to join Tencent’s family of studios. On the other side of the move, the chief strategy officer of Tencent Games Global, Eddie Chan, shared his thoughts as well:

“We are huge fans of Turtle Rock’s games, especially their amazing approach to creating co-operative online games. We can’t wait to see what comes next, and we’re excited to be part of their future.”

It’s also been stated that this acquisition won’t have any effect on Back 4 Blood, so fans can rest assured that nothing should change on that front.
