Google once considered teaming up with Tencent to take over Epic Games

When Epic publicly rejected Apple and Google’s app store terms and hit the “sue them all” button in 2020, it seemed like the fight was just beginning. Apparently, however, the daggers had already been out for a while by then, and were sharp as can be. We learned today that a Google exec went so far as to suggest settling a disagreement with Epic by making a deal with Tencent to wrest control of the company away from founder and CEO Tim Sweeney.

Tencent, the Chinese conglomerate that owns Riot Games and pieces of many other big developers, owns 40% of Epic Games, while Sweeney is the controlling shareholder. According to a court document filed by Epic today, an unnamed Google executive once suggested that if Epic didn’t play nice, Google should talk to Tencent about buying some of its Epic shares “to get more control” of the Fortnite developer, or that it could even work with Tencent to take over Epic entirely.
