The company behind The Verge, SB Nation and Vox Games has managed to raise an additional $17 million in investments from various sources, according to GameIndustry International. The information on the new financing was disclosed in a Form D filing from CEO James Bankoff with the SEC. Vox Games, the company's newest venture, made a splash when it hired Joystiq's Chris Grant, Kotaku's Brian Crecente, and former The Escapist EIC Russ Pitts – among others.
Vox Media was launched in 2003. It runs the popular sports portal SB Nation and the even more popular technology site The Verge. The company currently employs around 400 paid writers.
