UAE-based The TMRW Foundation has announced a significant investment in European gaming studio SuperGears Games.
Cevat Yerli, Founder and CEO of The TMRW Foundation, says this investment is part of its ongoing strategy to grow Web3 and gaming enterprises, including within the Emirates.
“The TMRW Foundation’s investment in SuperGears Games lays a strong foundation for collaboration and development between the businesses, with a view to creating real-world opportunities for the vibrant gaming ecosystem of the UAE. We continuously invest in talent and wholeheartedly support His Highness’ ambitious vision for Dubai to be the world’s next great gaming and Web3 hub.”
On selecting SuperGears Games for investment, Yerli added, “The team’s commitment to innovation and their passion for creating exceptional gaming experiences align perfectly with my own values and aspirations for the gaming industry.”
Yerli, who founded legendary gaming studio Crytek (producer of games such as FarCry and Crysis, played by hundreds of millions of people), will work closely with SuperGears’ founders Yasin and Yakup Demirden to accelerate their studio’s growth and bring their innovative vision to fruition. SuperGears, which specializes in the racing game genre, was founded in 2022 in Istanbul by Yasin and Yakup Demirden, who have more than 20 years of experience in developing acclaimed PC and mobile games that have reached millions of players worldwide.
Their debut franchise, Racing Kingdom, is set to launch in the first quarter of 2024 and promises to redefine the genre. The Racing Kingdom has innovative features that enable customized gameplay, immersive multiplayer experiences, and a broad appeal to racing enthusiasts of all levels, from casual to hardcore.
“We are honored to welcome The TMRW Foundation as an investor and Cevat Yerli as a member of our board of directors,” said SuperGears Founder & CEO Yasin Demirden. “Cevat’s vision and track record in the gaming industry will be invaluable as we work together to bring Racing Kingdom to a global audience. With his guidance and the support of The TMRW Foundation, we are more determined than ever to make Racing Kingdom a game-changer in the world of gaming.”
