Artillery was founded in 2012 by a team of passionate gamers to make great games and to make them more accessible. We’ve been lucky to have a number of great investors and partners who have helped us get this far. We raised our first funding three years ago and later partnered with Day9TV and made Sean “Day” Plott our head of game design. Today we’re proud to announce a new partner and investor: Tencent, the online gaming giant.
We first met with Tencent in early 2014 and were immediately impressed by their passion and understanding of games. We continued to seek their feedback and as we learned more about each other, we decided that it made sense to work together more formally. It has become clear to us why they are the world leader in online free to play games and we feel very fortunate to be working together.
This funding and shared vision for Atlas has allowed us to grow to over 20 employees and we will begin expanding our testing of our first game towards the end of this year. If you’re interested in becoming an early player, please sign up here.
