Time Warner and GGV Capital have agreed to finance Lord of the Rings Online developer Turbine to the tune of $40 million.
We’re not entirely sure if this is the same $40 million the company was supposed to have raised a month ago, but either way Turbine boss Jim Crowley is absolutely over the moon.
“This is truly an exciting time for Turbine. The addition of Time Warner, one of the world’s largest media companies, and GGV Capital, one of the financial community’s most sophisticated investors, adds a level of access, perspective and experience to Turbine that is singularly unique in the global online entertainment space,” he said.
