The gaming world continues to invest in developers and publishers. We last heard of Tencent buying out 3.8% of Remedy Entertainment and Sony taking over the studio responsible for the release of Returnal. But these are all projects on large platforms, now let’s talk about the publisher Garena Free Fire: he poured over $ 17.5 million into the Korean studio Hound13, which is familiar thanks to the mobile RPG Hundred Soul.
This is done in order to get a few more games in your portfolio, one of which is mobile. So far, publisher Garena is more famous for the Free Fire battle royale and the distribution rights for League of Legends: Wild Rift in Southeast Asia.
This investment allows Hound13 to focus on the development of two projects, the first of which is Project D. It is a cross-platform title for PCs and mobiles powered by the Unreal Engine. While it is known that there will be cute characters. From the screenshot, we can conclude that this is something like the Genshin Impact. Next comes Project M, an action RPG with a storyline on PC and Unreal Engine 4. As expected, Garena will receive the rights to publish these games.
