London-based game studio Omeda Studios has raised $20 million in funding to develop community-driven games. The investment was led by Austin-based private equity firm Haveli Investments and backed by existing investors, including GFR Fund, Possible Ventures and Progression fund. The Series A round comes on the back of its $2.2 million seed round in March last year.
Founded in 2020 by Robbie Singh, Andrea Garella and Steven Meilleur, Omeda Studios is a game studio that builds community-driven games. The company’s first title is Predecessor, a third-person action shooter MOBA that is currently in development for PC and console. The new cash would speed up the startup’s hiring process and roll out of Predecessor later this year.
Omeda Studios’ founder and CEO, Robbie Singh said: “Over the past year we’ve been working together with our community to really define what a MOBA looks like in today’s day and age. Having a close relationship with our community has allowed us to iterate fast and I think people are going to be extremely excited when they get their hands on the game later this year.”
Brian Sheth, founder of Haveli, added: “The startup has built an engaged community and game using a player-first approach that is incredibly exciting and holds the potential to rapidly become part of the pantheon of the great MOBAs.”
