Krafton Far From Home

Krafton Inc., a prominent name in the gaming industry with ties to successful titles like PUBG and Subnautica, has recently acquired a minority stake in Far From Home, the studio behind the popular first-person sci-fi survival game Forever Skies. This strategic partnership aims to support Far From Home in the ongoing development of Forever Skies and future projects while allowing the studio to maintain its independence and self-publishing approach.

The agreement between Krafton Inc. and Far From Home marks a significant milestone for both parties. Krafton’s investment signifies confidence in Far From Home’s vision and capabilities while providing the studio with additional resources and financial stability for long-term growth and sustainability.

Andrzej Blumenfeld, CEO of Far From Home, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, stating, “Having a partner like Krafton helps further cement our belief in the strength of our team and project.” He highlighted Krafton’s successful track record in investing in acclaimed titles like Subnautica and PUBG, emphasizing the potential for synergies and growth opportunities.

Far From Home, founded in April 2020, gained recognition with the release of Forever Skies on Steam Early Access, accumulating over 160,000 sales, and receiving positive feedback for its immersive gameplay and co-op mode. The game is slated for a full release on PC and PlayStation 5 later this year.

The capital injection from Krafton Inc. will primarily fuel the development of Far From Home’s second project, following the completion of Forever Skies and ongoing post-launch support. Blumenfeld noted, “The capital raised through Krafton will make it significantly easier for us to plan out and build our next title to be something bigger and even more ambitious.”

Despite the partnership with Krafton, Far From Home remains committed to retaining its independence and creative control. A Steam Blog Post has been published to inform players about the studio’s continued focus on Forever Skies and its commitment to delivering quality gaming experiences while exploring new horizons.

The collaboration between Krafton Inc. and Far From Home underscores the dynamic and evolving landscape of the gaming industry, where strategic partnerships foster innovation, growth, and the creation of immersive gaming experiences for players worldwide.
