Nexon makes 'strategic investment' in Human Element studio Robotoki

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

Nexon, a Korean publisher of online games, has made a "strategic investment" in Human Element developer Robotoki, the publisher announced today.

Nexon did not disclose the amount of the investment, but said, "This investment will be a step in the direction of coordinating efforts in developing future games based on Robotoki's development of multi-screen, cross-platform gameplay."

Robotoki was founded last April by Robert Bowling, former creative strategist at Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward. The Los Angeles-based studio is working on Human Element, a first-person survival game that takes place 35 years after a zombie apocalypse. Players will be able to determine their role in the post-apocalypse society and enjoy the game across Windows PC, Ouya and next-generation consoles, as well as iOS and Android devices. Human Element is set for release in 2015.

"Nexon shares our focus on team and talent, as well as our commitment to revitalizing and enhancing the game-play experience, and we are thrilled to work together," said Bowling in a press release announcing the investment.
