With a founding team made up of veteran VFX/CGI leaders, CryWorks announced their launch on Tuesday, along with a seed round investment led by Michael Bay’s 451 Media Group, 500 Mobile Collective, and leading cross-border venture fund WI Harper Group. We’ve seen Michael Bay hanging out at local LA virtual reality conferences over the past year, so it comes as no surprise that Bay is getting pretty serious about VR.

The CryWorks team is looking to take their industry experience in visual effects and AAA computer games and apply it to this new immerse medium, hoping to create new forms of entertainment and media and help launch new franchises and brands that transcend VR.
