According to the story by VentureBeat, Dubit is a game studio that specifically specializes in games that are for the metaverse. The company had just announced that it was able to raise a whopping $8 million in order to expand its very own esports efforts directly in the metaverse.

Metaventures and investor Jean-Charles Capelli were responsible for leading the round. As of the moment, Dubit is valued at $55 million and already has more than 100 employees.

Dubit Started in 1999

Dubit has already been making games for a long time. The company first started making games back in 1999 and has just recently expanded into the popular metaverse-friendly title known as Roblox.

Capelli noted that Dubit is now in the perfect position to be able to take advantage of the brand new opportunities in the metaverse. It was said that no other company in the space already has 20 years of experience when it comes to developing and launching virtual worlds.

Live Esports League in the Metaverse

Aside from experience, Capelli stated that they combine this with a great network of different brands and organizations that they work with all around the world. Dubit is expected to use this money to open the world’s first “live esports league” within the metaverse.

The MGL or Metaverse Gaming League is still currently in beta in Roblox. This is where it hosts live esports events. Matthew Warneford, the co-founder of Dubit, gave his statements regarding the recently raised capital.

Creating Massive Interactive Live Events

According to Warneford, they are delighted to work along with Jean-Charles Capelli to pioneer new ways for brands to be able to enter the metaverse. This could be through their Metaverse Gaming League.
