Along with the funding round announcement, Exclusbile, headquartered in Lisbon, announced that it has acquired Polycount, a metaverse development studio registered in the United States and working with the McDonalds and NBA team Utah Jazz. In the announcement made by Thibault Launay, who is the Exclusive Chief Executive Officer, all the details of the purchase agreement were not shared, but it was informed that the purchase was a mix of cash and shares.
“The Polycount team has established itself as one of the top Metaverse creative solution providers in the world.
