100% is that.It's not exactly clear why Rockstar and Epic Games have decided to offer GTA V for free this week. It's possible that it's just a promotional stunt to draw people to the Epic Games Store, giving Epic Games an opportunity to reel in more customers for paid titles.
Tencent doesn't own the company, but is a large shareholder in it. The majority shareholder is still the company's founder, Tim Sweeny. And according to a statement he made a little over a year ago, in response to questions about Epic's terms of service...You'll have to call Tencent and ask them - they own Epic Games.
They might reply in a timely manner...
Epic does not share user data with Tencent or any other company. We don't share it, sell it, or broker access to it for advertising like so many other companies do. I'm the founder and controlling shareholder of Epic and would never allow this to happen.
The language related to sharing data with the parent companies refers to Epic Games Inc. It's a US-based company. This language exists because when you buy an Epic game in certain territories (like Europe), the seller of record is our local (e.g. European) subsidiary company for tax purposes, but the data is ultimately stored by Epic Games Inc. Tencent is not a parent company of Epic. Tencent is an independent company that's a minority investor in Epic, alongside many others. However they do not have any sort of access to our customer data.
The other language around data in the EULA generally exists to cover the cases where we use third party service providers as part of operating our online services. For example, our game servers and databases are hosted on Amazon Web Services. However these third parties do not have the right to use or access Epic customer data in any way except for providing that service.
