VR studio Ramen lands $35m Series B

Virtual reality company Ramen has scored $35 million in funding via its Series B round.

The investment was led by Anthos Capital and Dune Ventures, with additional cash coming from the Makers Fund and Andreessen Horowitz's Andrew Chen and James Gwertzman. This money is set to go towards hiring more members of staff to "double to triple" its size, as well as doubling down on its VR MMO Zenith: The Lost City.

“The reception for Zenith has been amazing. We’re already profitable but now we want to take the game to the next level, building massive interconnected gaming worlds for all to explore,” Ramen co-founder and CEO Andy Tsen (pictured) said.

“Closing this important round of funding will help us grow our team so we can continue to build out our vision. We are fortunate to collaborate with these exceptional investment partners who believe in us as we continue to support Zenith throughout the game’s lifecycle.”

Zenith: The Last City launched on January 27th on Steam.
