Since it was founded eight months ago by Hearthstone and Blizzard veterans Ben Brode and Hamilton Chu, Second Dinner has apparently been operating out of Brode's garage. That's changing now, thanks to an investment from NetEase and a partnership with Marvel for a new, licensed IP.
In an announcement today, Second Dinner revealed that it has secured a $30 million investment from NetEase, which Chu says (https://twitter.com/seconddinner/status/1080890971284328449) is enough for the team to reach the end of its first project without having to "scramble" for more funds partway through.
That first project just so happens to be a licensed Marvel IP, which the team has been working on for six months already and is currently beginning to playtest.
