Thirdverse completes $11.3M funding round for VR games


Thirdverse has raised an additional $3.3 million in funding, completing its Series D funding round for a total of $11.3 million.

Thirdverse CEO Hironao Kunimitsu had previously announced the Series D funding for its virtual reality games in November. Now the company has raised more money through a third-party allotment of shares underwritten by Nissei Capital Co. and VeriServe Corp.

Including the funds raised before the company’s division on May 1, the cumulative total funding raised by Thirdverse has now hit $42 million.

Going forward, the company plans to strengthen its development teams and infrastructure for the VR title X8, officially released on November 9, and the ongoing development of Soul Covenant, as well as for the initiation of new projects.
