Grand Theft Auto Series Former Producer’s Build a Rocket Boy Completes $110 Million Series D Fundraising

Build a Rocket Boy, the development studio founded by former Grand Theft Auto series producer and Rockstar North president Leslie Benzies, completed a $110 million series D fundraising to launch its products.

The fundraising round was led by RedBird Capital Partners, a private investment firm with a long track record investing in media, entertainment, and sports. Following the fundraising, Julia Wittlin, a partner at RedBird Capital, is set to join Build A Rocket Boy’s board of directors.

The financing round also had strong support from existing and new investors, including Galaxy Interactive, NetEase Games, Endeavor, Alignment Growth, Woodline Partners LP, GTAM Partners, and others. The new capital will allow the studio to launch its products, such as the unique open-world platform Everywhere, the AAA series MindsEye, and a suite of easy-to-use UGC design tools called ARCADIA.

Leslie Benzies, Founder and Chairman of Build A Rocket Boy commented on the successful fundraising, saying: “We are excited to partner with RedBird and our other investors to help us launch EVERYWHERE, MindsEye, and what we believe will be game-changing UGC design tools in ARCADIA. RedBird’s expertise in building successful entertainment and media platforms will be invaluable and makes them a perfect partner. I started Build A Rocket Boy so that I could continue to share the stories I love with players and give them a place to create and share. We believe in a future where game creation is put in the hands of the players, and we will empower them with the tools to help shape this vision with us.”

More information on Build A Rocket Boy and its project can be found on its official website. Both Everywhere and MindsEye still lack a release window.
