Rebel Wolves acquires investment from NetEase Games

The newly made studio has managed to secure an investment to help fuel its future growth

Video game studio Rebel Wolves, which was created back in February by former members of CD Projekt RED has announced it has now secured investment from NetEase Games

The strategic investment has seen NetEase acquire a minority stake in the studio. However, Rebel Wolves will remain independent and maintain full creative control and ownership of its intellectual property. The studio has built years of experience by helping to co-create titles such as The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077. The team is currently working on a AAA IP story-driven RPG saga with dark fantasy themes and a keen focus on storytelling and player choice. 

Creating the next generation of RPGs

Co-founder, CEO, and game director at Rebel Wolves, Konrad Tomaszkiewicz commented on the investment saying, “We’re delighted to welcome NetEase Games as our new shareholder and partner. Having one of the leading global game companies get behind our vision is a great confidence boost and validation for the entire team at Rebel Wolves. Funding provided by NetEase was the last missing piece needed to go full throttle. With resources available to build a world-class AAA game, we can now focus on what matters most: development.” 

President of Global partnerships and investments at NetEase Games, Simon Zhu also commented on the partnership stating, “It’s exceedingly rare to have the opportunity to work with an all-star team from the beginning of their journey. Everyone at NetEase Games has been an admirer of the Rebel Wolves team and their previous work. We quickly discovered our common passion for making great games and their long-term vision for creating a sustainable and creative studio aligns with our strategy of incubating talented creators who are passionate about gaming. We look forward to having a fruitful collaboration with Rebel Wolves and can’t wait to see how the team will leverage their extensive experience to create even more immersive games enjoyed by fans all over the world.” 

Rebel Wolves state on their website that the studio aims to revolutionise the RPG genre and create a studio where developers are able to thrive.
