Chinese giant NetEase Games has invested in Polish developer Rebel Wolves.
The studio hasn't said how much cash it has attracted from the firm, but – speaking to Game Developer – CEO Konrad Tomaszkiewicz has described this funding as "the last missing piece" it required to "go full throttle".
"The investment from NetEase is a part of our long-term strategy and it secures the team and the project financially," said Tomaszkiewicz.
"In these times (on so many levels), having the financial security and backing of an innovative global player does wonders for our confidence and peace of mind. It also lets us put those prepared plans into motion with maximum efficiency."
Tomaszkiewicz was formerly the director of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, though left developer CD Projekt in May 2021 following an investigation into office bullying. Though he was not found guilty of such behaviour officially, he nonetheless apologised for causing people to feel "fear, stress or discomfort" while working with him.
