thatgamecompany raises $7M for next game

May 27 // Jordan Devore    @DtoidJordan

Investment to 'scale up development efforts' and more

Hearing stories about the development of Journey, we're fortunate thatgamecompany was able to pull through and finish the game given its financing woes. At least for the time being, the studio is set -- an additional $7 million in funding from private equity firm Capital Today and other investors has been raised for the team's unannounced next game.

"With this new investment, our studio is able to scale up development efforts to focus on making the best game possible in the same spirit as flOw, Flower, and Journey," wrote studio manager Sunni Pavlovic. "We'll also begin laying the infrastructure to self-publish, market, and distribute on our own terms for this next project and beyond."

After the last two titles, you can sign me up for whatever thatgamecompany is doing next. In line with prior comments about this new game, Pavlovic said it would be "an emotionally engaging experience centered around human connections for players of all ages and backgrounds."
