VR-focused Reload Studios reaps $2M investment to go beyond games

VR-focused Reload Studios reaps $2M investment to go beyond games

June 3, 2015 | By Alex Wawro

Newsbrief: L.A.-based Reload Studios has picked up $2 million from the World Innovation Lab investment firm to fund continuing development of its 3 extant virtual reality game projects and expand the studio's remit beyond games.

The VR-focused company was founded last summer by a group of game makers (including some ex-Infinity Ward folks) seeking to broadly explore VR experience development, and today CEO James Chung stated in a press release that part of this new influx of cash will be used in "growing Reload Studios beyond just a development studio."

For now, the studio is perhaps best known for its work developing World War Toons, an online multiplayer shooter designed with Unreal Engine 4 to be comfortable for extended VR play; Reload aims to release it for both VR and non-VR platforms in the first quarter of 2016.
