Krafton Inc. acquires minority stake in Far From Home, creators of Forever Skies

Updated: Apr 26

Krafton Inc. - with the likes of PUBG and Subnautica in its portfolio - will help Far From Home secure its long-term future and goals.


Far From Home, the creators of Forever Skies have signed a deal with renowned publisher Krafton Inc, the company with ties to titles such as PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS, The Callisto Protocol, The Ascent, and Subnautica to name a few. 


The South Korean powerhouse will acquire a minority stake in Far From Home and will be supporting the studio with the ongoing development of Forever Skies and future projects. Far From Home will remain an independent studio that will continue to self-publish its titles, including Forever Skies.


Having a partner like Krafton helps further cement our belief in the strength of our team and project. Especially since Krafton's track record includes investing in the creators of one of the most acclaimed survival games Subnautica, and one of the biggest coop hits, PUBG. While we can comfortably fund the operation of our studio through the sales of Forever Skies, the capital injection from Krafton will provide important funding diversification and security for us in the long term. We are pleased that Krafton believes in our vision and wants to support our growth. With this in mind and with the recent announcement of our agreement with Sony, we believe that our games will be even better and the future of Far From Home looks bright. - Andrzej Blumenfeld, CEO, Far From Home 


Founded in April 2020, the Polish studio has since self-published and released the first-person sci-fi survival game Forever Skies into Steam Early Access. The game has garnered 160,000+ sales with a co-op mode and a full release on PC and PlayStation 5 announced for later this year. The funds raised through the Krafton Inc. partnership will be used primarily for the development of the team’s second project. This will happen after the completion of Forever Skies development and alongside its post-full-launch support.


“Our funding for the completion of Forever Skies is secured, but eventually, we will need to start looking ahead at what comes next for our team. The capital raised through Krafton will make it significantly easier for us to plan out and build our next title to be something bigger and even more ambitious. At the same time, we retain our independence and full creative control which is extremely important to us. added Andrzej Blumenfeld
