Polish videogames group 1C Entertainment announced today that it is changing its name to Fulqrum Games, signifying new plans for the future following its acquisition by Tencent in November 2021. The company is well known for several types of games, but really made a name for themselves over the years with wargames and other strategy titles.

According to the company, ancient inventor and scientist Archimedes can explain the name change.
“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” – Archimedes
This change in identity reflects a new direction in the group’s global strategy. As the name implies, the company aims to be universally recognized as the partner that any game developer can lean on to fully leverage their talent and vision, and bring the best possible gaming experiences to a worldwide audience together, thanks to innovative concepts, inventive gameplay, and original worlds that transcend the boundaries of video games.
