[Game website] Having announced its first online Free-to-Play MOBA title, Gigantic, it was revealed that indie studio Motiga received 20 million USD in funding as well. Motiga was apparently a mobile games studio initially, and the latest funding comes from NetEase, Smilegate and Neowiz.
The 3 companies are some of the biggest players in the online gaming industry, with NetEase being the number 2 leader in China. It is also well-known to be Blizzard’s proxy partner in the world’s largest games market. It seems the MOBA genre is still getting loads of attention despite several failures.
