Splitgate Developers Obtain $100m in Funding

Splitgate developers 1047 Games has revealed that they've just received $100m in funding. Having launched their competitive sci-fi first-person shooter into an open beta back in July, this cross between Portal and Halo's proven significantly popular, resulting in delays to full release as 1047 Games boost their servers.

Announcing that they've closed their third round of funding, 1047 Games secured $100m after being valued at $1.5 billion. That brings their investment total to $120m since Splitgate became popular.
