Bohemia Interactive says it isn’t being acquired by Tencent, despite recent reports

DayZ and Arma 3 developer Bohemia Interactive has moved to quash recent reports claiming Chinese conglomerate Tencent had purchased a majority share of the studio.

News of the acquisition first surfaced in a story by tech industry website The Information, which reported that Tencent had acquired a 70-80% stake in Bohemia Interactive for around $260m USD, citing “a person familiar with the matter” as its source.
