Heard video gaming company Epic Games is fundraising at a valuation of $15bn. That's huuuge!
Anyone knows which bank(s) are working on it?

I believe Raine and Gugg led the last round, so both or either is definitely a possibility this time around. Could have also gone a little bigger toward BBs / larger EB.

Raine is pretty underrated. They work on a lot of interesting media/entertainment plays that are not "traditional" TMT plays.

Yeah they're one of the best in their space. Wouldn't be surprised if they stuck around for industry expertise, but would probably expect one of the big guns to be on this one too.

It's too juicy of a deal for GS TMT, MS TMT, Qatalyst, or Allen, to not get involved in.

Not much to contribute to the conversation but wow nice to hear news on Epic. Unreal engine is state of the art, I wish I had more time to learn how to play with it as its results are pretty... unreal
