Krafton, a South Korean gaming giant behind the global hit PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), announced Thursday that it has invested $5.4 million in Indian sports game developer Nautilus Mobile.
This is Krafton’s first investment in an Indian game development studio.
Nautilus is a sports game developer that has developed a cricket game franchise. “Real Cricket” has been downloaded over 100 million times worldwide and has over 10 million monthly active users.
Established in 2007, Krafton became a major contender in the global gaming market following the launch of PUBG in 2017, reports Yonhap news agency.
