HTC invests $5m in Pixar, Lucasfilm and Telltale vets’ VR studio

Vive maker HTC has invested in a start-up virtual reality developer formed by ex-members of major film and games firms.

Steel Wool Studios was founded by veterans from Pixar, Lucasfilm and Telltale Games and launched its first VR titles, Quar: Battle for Gate 18, alongside the Vive back in April.

The $5 million in funding from HTC will go towards bankrolling further VR efforts, including the upcoming simulation Mars Odyssey, which is set for a September release.
