Razer will work with Tencent on a raft of initiatives related to smartphone-based games, according to TechCrunch.
The collaboration will cover hardware, software and services and will aim to optimize Tencent games including “PUBG” and “Fortnite” for Razer’s smartphones, mobile controllers and its Cortex Android launcher app.
The companies also said they may “explore additional monetization opportunities for mobile gaming,” which could see Tencent integrate Razer’s services, which include a rewards/loyalty program, in some areas.
Razer is also making a push into payments through a service that operates in Southeast Asia. Driven by the acquisition of MOL one year ago, Razer has moved from allowing people to buy credit over-the-counter to launch an e-wallet in Malaysia and Singapore.
