Tianmei Studio Group, popularly known as TiMi Studio Group, is a game development wing of Tencent Games. It has developed top-grossing games ranging from Honor of Kings and Ace Racer in China to Call of Duty: Mobile. It's also working with The Pokémon Company to launch the highly anticipated Pokémon Unite MOBA.
Although there are no details yet on the partnership between the two studios, history suggests the partnership will bring an Xbox franchise to mobile. Popular IP could be something from the Halo, Gear of War or Fable universe, although that is only speculation.
"Tianmei Studio Group is a boutique game research and operation team under Tencent Games, and has been committed to bringing players a better gaming experience," the statement reads.
"Through this strategic cooperation, Tianmei Studio Group will conduct multi-dimensional and in-depth cooperation and communication with Xbox Game Studios to jointly create excellent game content and bring a brand new game sensory experience to the majority of players."
More details on this partnership are expected to be revealed by the end of 2021.
Earlier this year, Microsoft launched its Xbox Cloud Gaming streaming service on iOS devices.
