Other investors include VGames, Lakestar and 1Up Ventures.

Free-to-play multiplayer shooter Splitgate launched in May 2019 on Steam, to very positive reviews. The funds will go towards "increasing production of in-game content" as well as bolster the studio's marketing efforts to attract new players. 1047 Games will also focus on recruitment and expanding its dev team.

The studio has raised a total of $10 million to date, including previous rounds led by Draper Dragon and Draper University Ventures.

1047's co-founder and CEO Ian Proulx said: "We're proud to be working with the game industry's top VCs to elevate Splitgate's position as a top-tier multiplayer experience. We're uniquely positioned among online shooters to grow and expand both our current game and its loyal fan base to more gamers around the globe."
