What would you do with $50 million?
The developers of Crackdown (for the X360) are making an MMORPG; they've just secured $50 million USD in second round funding. The purpose of the funding wasn't announced, but we can assume it's going towards Realtime Worlds' only announced project, the cops and robbers MMORPG APB.
"Securing funding of this size from partners that are leading the financial and marketing communications industries further affirms Realtime Worlds' position as one of the most creative, respected and successful game development companies in the world," said David Jones, founder and CEO, Realtime Worlds. "Since our
founding, we have been fortunate to have some of the gaming industry's top creative talent crafting amazing, groundbreaking interactive entertainment products. With this new infusion of capital, Realtime Worlds is poised to deliver new original experiences to gamers around the globe and to push the boundaries of online gaming."
