Vainglory – Tablet MOBA studio gets $15 million in venture funding

The latest studio to focus on MOBA games on tablet devices just received $15 million in venture funding. Meet Super Evil Megacorp, formed by veterans from Riot Games and Rockstar among many others. Its first title. a tablet-exclusive MOBA, Vainglory, is currently being tested in selected regions.

 

If you ask me, $15 million USD is huge money for a new developer, and the backers must be really sold on the future of competitive gaming on tablet devices. Do note that of the amount, $3.6 million was raised back in 2012, while $11.6 million was raised just recently.
