Bait!, Angry Birds AR Dev Resolution Games Raises $7.5 Million

by Jamie Feltham • October 23rd, 2018

It’s more good news for Resolution Games, the VR and AR developer co-founded by Candy Crush Saga creator Tommy Palm.

The company today announced that it has raised $7.5 million in a series B round of investment led by MizMaa Ventures with participation from GP Bullhound, Fly Forever and Unity founder David Helgason. Previous investors also contributed to the recent round, which brings the Sweden-based developer’s total funding to $13.5 million.

The studio says it will use this money to “expand its portfolio” of games for both VR and AR hardware.

Resolution has had a pretty busy few years, starting out with a free solitaire game on Gear VR before launching its popular Bait! fishing series, which has enjoyed VR and AR entries and even a minigame inside Facebook’s Spaces social VR platform. Since then the studio has released Google Daydream titles like Wonderglade and Narrows but, more recently, launched an AR version of Rovio’s Angry Birds franchise on the Magic Leap One.

“With the amount of interest we’re seeing from the industry around our titles, coupled with the exciting new platforms like the Oculus Quest coming to market, we foresee larger volumes of players and a viable multiplayer market,” Palm said in a prepared statement. “Needless to say, these are exciting times.”

It sounds like we might be seeing some Resolution titles on Quest, then.
