Even this studio is a new one, the team started to work on their game and already raised $4.7 million so far. In an interview, Tim Morten said: “Real-time strategy players are an incredibly passionate community. And they deserve not just a great new game, but one they can share broadly with friends. Building a worthy successor will take time, but we’re incredibly excited and grateful to carry real-time strategy forward at Frost Giant Studios. I came to Frost Giant Studios to build the next great RTS. RTS is really the genre that I love the most. This was an opportunity to make something new and that is such a rare opportunity in game development. I’m super excited to have this chance.”.
