Frost Giant Studios raises $4.7M to fund a New RTS Game
Frost Giant Studios, a new game studio founded by Tim Morten (Former Production Director of StarCraft II) and Tim Campbell (Former Lead Campaign Designer of Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne), has raised $4.7 to create a new real-time strategy game.

  • Frost Giant Studios received funding from Bitkraft Ventures, 1Up Ventures, GC Tracker, Riot Games, and Griffin Gaming Partners.
  • The money will be used to grow the team, build a prototype for gameplay, conduct consumer research, and expand operations.
  • The main team is currently formed of eight Blizzard Entertainment Veterans, which plan to advance the RTS genre by applying what they’ve learned from players over the last 10 years.
  • The team wants to lower the entry barrier into the RTS game and also provide high quality gameplay for the co-op, campaign, and competitive modes.
  • Development will be focused primarily on the PC platform since RTS games are best played with a mouse and keyboard.
