Turbine, the developer behind MMOs Lord of the Rings Online and Asheron’s Call, has raised $6.6 million in venture capital funding.
The news comes via this SEC filing and the money comes as part of a planned series D $50 million investment run. Many of the names investing are return investors from last year’s series C $40 million takings.
This comes in the wake of the developer planning to release Dungeons & Dragons Online as a free-to-play MMO.
MMOs really do require big investment. You only need to look back to reports of Curt Schilling’s company needing $50-100 million to start-up.
