Sony vet Phil Harrison invests in ex-Sony London chief's new VR startup

Phil Harrison, former key PlayStation exec and Worldwide Studios chief, was one of the first people to invest in Dream Reality Interactive, a new VR startup from former Sony London head Dave Ranyard.

Dream Reality Interactive, the virtual reality studio founded by the former head of Sony London Studio, Dave Ranyard, has completed its first funding round

Veteran game industry exec and former president of Sony Worldwide Studios, Phil Harrison, was one of the first people to invest in the company, which also caught the eye of advertising and digital design outfit, Mother. 

It's unclear how much cash Dream Reality pulled in, but we know the funds will be used to build-out and accelerate the studio's development pipeline. 

The fledgling firm already has a number of projects in the works such as Hold the World, a virtual reality museum experience featuring Sir David Attenborough.

"We are really excited by the space where AR, VR and AI meet and can see amazing opportunities for new levels of immersion and human interaction," commented Ranyard.

"Having backing from two successful and insightful investors enables us to accelerate our ambitions and is a huge validation of the talented team we have put together."
