Today, Cloud Imperium Games and Turbulent announced they have extended their partnership through mutual investment. Cloud Imperium UK Ltd. has purchased 22,250 shares of Turbulent stock directly from Turbulent co-founders Marc Beaudet and Benoit Beausejour, making Cloud Imperium UK a 25% shareholder, and acquired two seats on the Turbulent board. “Cloud Imperium UK’s share acquisition expands and formalizes the long-running partnership between Cloud Imperium and Turbulent, who has been instrumental in assisting in the creation of Star Citizen’s online and publishing platform throughout the 7+ year relationship between the two companies,” said Ortwin Freyermuth, co-founder, vice-chairman, and general counsel of Cloud Imperium Games. Cloud Imperium is creating Star Citizen, a record-shattering largely crowdfunded space sim, and Squadron 42, a Hollywood-caliber story-driven single-player game set in the same universe. Cloud Imperium operates in “open development” – sharing progress and updates with our backers in near real time.
