Worlds Adrift Developer Bossa Studios Secures $10M Investment
Bossa Studios, developers of the upcoming sandbox MMORPG Worlds Adrift, has recently secured a $10 million Series A investment from their latest investment round led by London-based international investment firm Atomico, with the participation of London Venture Partners, the studios existing investors. Atomico co-founder Mattias Ljungman and Executive-in-Residence Alexis Bonte will both be joining Bossa Studio’s board.
“This new round of funding will be used to cement the future success of the studio, supporting its recruitment of top talent that will help define Bossa’s strategic focus on AI, User Generated Content and Open Development, as the studio also prepares to launch Worlds Adrift to the public, the first ever game to be built on Improbable’s SpatialOS platform.”
“Since first being introduced at Slush thanks to the Games London team, we've brought together the dream pair of partners who share our vision for the future: Atomico, Europe's largest venture fund with operational excellence at their core and LVP, our original investors and advisors,” says Bossa Studios co-founder and CEO Henrique Olifiers. “Together we're able to accelerate Bossa's strategy of creating a new breed of multiplayer games based on crowdsourced content, AI-directed procedural generation, and an open development ethos bringing the community into the fabric of everything we do.”
