Mythical Games Raise $150M from Funding Round 

Mythical Games have raised $150 million from a funding round that features numerous top names in the financial industry. The funding round was led by global venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), including FTX, Binance Labs, Michael Novogratz, Michael Jordan, and many other top institutions and individuals. Mythical Games now has a market valuation of $1.25 billion after the funding round. 

The considerable fund would be used to develop the platform’s open-world multiplayer game—Blankos Block Party, and promote more Non-fungible Token (NFT) games in the future. The new round takes Mythical Games’ total funding to $270 million, barely four months after raising $75 million in early June. In addition, the NFT game platform has raised a total of $225 million in 2021. 

In an interview with GamesBeat, CEO of Mythical Games, John Linden, disclosed that the funding round was impromptu. However, he asserted that the funds would go a long way in developing the platform’s ecosystem. 

“We weren’t planning on raising and Andreessen came to us and put together a round for us, which was great,” John Linden told GamesBeat. “We’re very honored to be a portfolio company of Andressen Horowitz.”
