Frogwares, the Ukrainian studio behind Sherlock Holmes Chapter One and The Sinking City, has announced that it has received an Epic MegaGrant from Epic Games to provide support during the war in Ukraine.
The funds from the Epic MegaGrant “will be crucial in relocating employees to safer areas and will help those who've moved to remote regions of Ukraine” as well as those who have moved to other EU countries to escape the war, says Frogwares.
“The war has also created a financial gap for the studio that has impacted our business. We've been working hard these past couple of months to renew and maintain the usual pipelines, and the MegaGrant will assist us in suppling our team with specialised equipment that's vital for game development, and to migrate our data infrastructure.”
Frogwares goes on to thank Epic Games, saying the grant will soften the financial blow from the war and allow the studio to “stay on its feet”.
