Finnish developer Mainframe had previously confirmed that it was working on a new MMO that will primarily be played through remote servers, and it was claimed that the game would be exclusive to Xbox platforms.
Now, however – according to journalist Jeff Grubb, who previously reported the aforementioned details – the game will be a multiplatform title. According to Grubb, who spoke about this during the recent GamesBeat Decides podcast, Mainframe has raised $23 million in funding, though it’s not from Microsoft, and as such, the game is no longer planned as an Xbox-exclusive, and will instead be a multiplatform title. Grubb also stated that, seemingly, “one was played off the other to try to increase the amount of money they might get.”
