The company is working on a large battle royale game that is expected to launch in early 2022.

 “India is easily the most exciting single market for gaming in the next decade and is developing at an extraordinary pace on the ground. The team at SuperGaming is well-positioned to capture both India and the global video game market, and in our more than 3 years of searching the Indian startup scene, SuperGaming team was the only team who is building games by global standards. Overall, we think SuperGaming is the clear frontrunner in winning India gaming and becoming a rising star globally,”statedSia Kamalie, founder and fund manager, Skycatcher.

SuperGaming previously raised $1.3 million in its 2019 Seed Funding from Dream Incubator, Akatsuki Entertainment Technology Fund, and Better Capital.
