EpicGames has given the Ukrainian Federation of Frogwares a "mega grant."

Epic Games has given Sherlock Holmes and Sinking City developer Frogwares, which is located in Ukraine.

The unreported amount of money will go to employees to assist them in their relocation to safer areas of the country or elsewhere in Europe, as well as to maintain their financial stability in the future, according to Frogwares.

Frogwares may offer its team with special equipment and transfer its data infrastructure, according to the funding package.

"As of today in Ukraine, the war continues to unfold. During this time, we as a studio need to feel strong, maintain a positive attitude, and do everything we can to keep the business operating, while supplanting our team with the assistance they need," Frogwares wrote.

"In short, the Epic MegaGrant will be used to lessen the financial blow from the war and stay on our feet, and we''d like to thank Epic Games for their assistance during this difficult time."

This money is separate from Epic Games'' two-week worth of Fortnite income, which is all $144 million in investment in Ukraine or assisting its citizens.

Any developer who is working on an Unreal Engine game can apply for a MegaGrant from Epic, and get a $500k offer.

Back in March, Frogwares announced their first Sherlock Holmes DLC. "We need to keep the studio alive and functioning to the best of our abilities now more than ever," said Wael Amr, the company''s chief executive.
