Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser has joined the advisory board of blockchain studio Revolving Games after he participated in a $13.2 million funding round.
He is best known for being the co-founder of Rockstar Games and worked on most of their biggest titles as a writer or co-writer. His works include the majority of Grand Theft Auto games and Bully. Houser left Rockstar Games in March of 2020.
Houser would later start a new company by the name of Absurd Ventures, though what their plans for the future are currently unknown at the time of writing. With this investment in blockchain gaming, it seems this could be a hint.
Revolving Games is a company with two development studios currently working on 2 blockchain based games.
One of their games is an MMO themed off the popular sci-fi franchise Battlestar Galactica, in collaboration with NBC Universal. Their other is Skyborne Legacy, a co-op adventure title inspired by games such as Animal Crossing and Legend of Zelda.
Since the company’s founding, they’ve raised over $25 million to develop Web3 games and technology.
