Gaming unicorn Mobile Premier League (MPL), sent a game studio to advance the AAA (premium) cellular video game event for the domestic and global business lines. Mayhem Studios, a subsidiary of MPL, aims to use the Indian developer community to deliver high quality video games. The studio may have a group of professionals in the field of animation, artwork, cutscenes, design, engineering, sports UI and UX design, and sports manufacturing. Last September, MPL raised its Series E funding round led by Legatum Capital at a pre-cash valuation of $2.3 billion. This made it India’s second gaming unicorn or an estimated $1 billion+ kickstarter.
Based in Bengaluru, Mayhem Studios will be the first AAA game studio in India. Mayhem Studios will be working on several esports and other game titles to meet ever-increasing demand due to the gaming boom in India and other markets. Ojas Vipat will be the CEO of Mayhem Studios.
“India has the potential to become a gaming hub in the world,” said Sai Srinivas, co-founder and CEO of MPL. “Creating the infrastructure required to create world-class games is imperative to help realize the country’s vision of making India’s digital games industry a global leader. The launch of Mayhem Studios is our first contribution to realizing this vision.
“Mayhem Studios will focus on developing games that all gamers can relate to and enjoy the best-in-class gaming experience,” said Ojas Vipat, CEO of Mayhem Studios. “Establishing such a state-of-the-art studio is the first major step towards developing many AAA mobile game titles from India for global markets and we are well on our way.”
