Former EverQuest Producer, Jeffrey Butler, Secures $13 Million In Funding For New Start-Up, AVALON.
AVALON Corp. is focused on revolutionizing how games and virtual experiences are made.
The new company AVALON Corp. has currently raised $13 million in funding to build a new interoperable digital universe. "We have an opportunity to change the digital world, and we truly believe we are the right team to ensure these changes are beneficial for both creators and players," said Sean Pinnock, CEO of AVALON Corp. In addition to creating a platform and toolset for creators, the company also plans to delve into MMOs.
The company is founded by gaming industry veterans with projects on their resume that include EverQuest, Call of Duty, Diablo, God of War, Assassin’s Creed, and Elden Ring, to name a few. With a comprehensive and extensive background in games, AVALON Corp. believes they are just the company to solve problems that creators and designers will face in the near future by building the tools, framework, and more to do just that.
"We know that engagement is driven through play, creativity, and human connectivity, all critical elements that are severely lacking in most self-proclaimed metaverses, and it’s exactly why the inevitable confluence of tech that will emerge as the metaverse will be built by game developers," Pinnock explained.
AVALON Corp. wants to be the spark that ignites the creation of the worlds that gamers have long dreamed of, with its own unique brand of proverbial glue that is equal parts experience, foresight, and imagination. AVALON Corp. plans to revolutionize how games and virtual experiences are built and is focused on ‘the sorcery of game-making’ rather than the finance business of the metaverse. It is because of this ideology that many have backed and put funding into AVALON Corp, including BITKRAFT Ventures, HASHED, Delphi Digital, and Mechanism Capital. In addition, the co-founder of Twitch, Kevin Lin, and the previous CEO of Pearl Abyss, Robin Jung, have also put funding into the company.
"It's rare to find a company that has the vision, leadership, and expertise in many verticals to produce a revolutionary game and product," said Jeremy Parris, Delphi Digital. "We at Delphi Digital believe that AVALON Corp. has brought together all the elements across the board to push the standard of gaming, the metaverse, and the new tech it's harnessing forward significantly. The future is closer than many think."
AVALON is continuing to grow its team and those in search of a job or who would like to learn more about AVALON should check out its official site.
