Starcraft veterans raise 25 million to create a new RTS in Unreal Engine 5

At the end of 2020 a group of former Blizzard developers with experience in the StarCraft and Warcraft sagas announced the creation of a new studio focused on the development of real-time strategy games. Since then they have been advancing in the pre-production of their first project, achieving financing of several important companies of the stature of Riot Games, responsible for League of Legends, and Kokoa Games, publishers of PUBG: Battlegrounds in South Korea.

In its latest round of investment, Frost Giant Studios has secured 25 million dollars precisely of these two companies mentioned. With what they had already achieved so far, the amount available to the group of veterans to make their first independent project a reality amounts to 34.7 million dollars. With that money they will make an RTS in Unreal Engine 5, a video game that they have not yet presented in society, but that they assure that they will officially announce throughout this year.
