Inside sources linked to Gamingonphone with TiMi studio officials broke the news. As the main reason for both companies to part is very evident, another reason has also led to the termination of the party.

Reasons Activision and Tencent parted ways
  1. The main reason both companies parted ways was President Trump’s executive order. This order restricts US companies from conducting transactions with Chinese companies. This was bound to happen but not everyone expected this early. Several Chinese apps are expected to get the axe from the USA market. This is a result of the trade war between China and USA.
  2. The second key reason for both companies to part ways earlier than expected is due to Tencent gaming copying features from Activision. Since recently Gamin enthusiasts have noticed how PUBG mobile has begun nicking features from COD mobile. Features copied from COD mobile and implemented in PUBG mobile are Aerial platform, gun game and several locations.
