Beijing (PingWest)—ByteDance, the parent company of the viral social media app TikTok, secretly established a team with around 100 people in China named the "Oasis Project," aiming to create games independently.

Unlike the small games and casual games that the firm has previously launched, the Oasis Project will focus on the development of heavy games.

ByteDance is trying hard to diversify its business, through international expansion and other new business initiatives in domestic markets, according to CNBC's interview with Choi Chun, the senior analyst at iResearch.
