Next phase: New investment, new game Go back

Stratosphere Games is very excited to announce an investment round by Riot Games, 1Up Ventures, and Skycatcher. In addition, the company has also received a new grant from the German Games Fund (“Computerspielef√∂rderung des Bundes”).

The total funds of over 3M Euros will be used for the next step on the product roadmap by developing a cooperative-looter-shooter named “Desolation”. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic sci-fi world and is designed as a multi-platform title. It will feature a shooter mechanic that will bridge the experience gap between different platforms.

With the new title, the company aims to develop an entire cross-platform IP to finalize the transformation into a major developer and publisher of live games and living worlds. As a first step, we have already increased our headcount to 67 with over 22 nationalities and expect to grow to 100 by end of 2023.

Fall 2022 will see the long-awaited start of this transformation with the release of Homeworld Mobile and the early access of Dawn of Ages. While the former is published by Gearbox Publishing with support from us, the latter will be entirely self-published.
