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."
