Scopely is proud to announce that we have raised $55M in Series B financing led by Greycroft Growth Fund with participation from a roster of world class investors including Elephant Partners, Evolution Media Partners, Highland Capital, Take-Two Interactive, and Sands Capital Ventures. We also welcome Greycroft Partner Mark Terbeek and Scopely’s President and COO Javier Ferreira to our Board of Directors.
This milestone represents the culmination of many previous achievements from the Scopely team including launching six consecutive #1 games and realizing more than 6x growth in revenue run rate in the past 18 months. In 2015 we launched Yahtzee With Buddies and Walking Dead: Road To Survival, both of which were among the top 10 grossing new games launched in 2015 by North American revenues.
With the capital infusion we will continue to execute against our slate and scale our business model across an even wider array of products and users. We’re grateful to the partners and friends in the Scopely ecosystem for their continued support.
