Thatgamecompany Lands $7 Million To Help Fund New Project
Thatgamecompany's new project is a go!
As announced at the developer's website, the team has raised $7 million for their next game, which is currently unannounced.
The funding comes from venture capital firm Capital Today and a team of other investors, who, according to a statement from the designers- "share our vision in making meaningful interactive experiences that inspire, connect, and emotionally touch the hearts of players around the world." Yeah, and it probably helps that you've got a multiple award-winner like Journey on your resume as well.
Thatgamecompany has now entered "the next phase of development" and the newly acquired $7 million will ramp things up and let the studio create the "best game possible." The developer intents to self-publish going forward and of course, that takes money. As for the unannounced project in question, all they'll say is that it'll be an "emotionally engaging experience centered around human connections for players of all ages and backgrounds."
Well, of course. It's Thatgamecompany.
