Revolving Games also plans to use the funds to build scalable web3 AAA games based on its own original IPs and in partnership with global partners over the next two years.
The company has already invested over $12 million over the last 2.5 years in gaming technology, enabling web3 builders to launch new games faster and more efficiently, Revolving Games, revealed in a press release on Friday.
“Our vision is clear: to build AAA quality games that turn heads amongst the best launches at the top gaming forums like Gamescom and E3!

We are building the future of gaming and gameplay!” said Saad Zaeem, Co-CEO of Revolving Games.
In a report published by Dapp Radar, web3 games and metaverse projects have raised over $750 million since the beginning of August.
Revolving Games launched as a free-to-play mobile game in 2020 and has since grown to have two studios with a team of more than 100 staff working on blockchain gaming projects across Europe, Asia and South America.
The company launched its first AAA web3 Battlestar Galactica-themed game in June, developed in collaboration with web3 and metaverse gaming company Gala Games and global entertainment giant NBCUniversal.
Yat Siu, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Animoca Brands said, “We love the work we’re seeing from Revolving Games and in particular its passion for building a Web3 ecosystem of exciting, unique gaming experiences.
