A message from Tim O’Brien, Chief Revenue Officer and Board Member of Scopely: 

I am thrilled to share that Scopely recently acquired a new game experience → “Stumble Guys” from Kitka Games

This highly engaging battle royale party experience has attracted more than 20 million daily players around the globe. Complementing our diverse portfolio of games that evolve with players for years, “Stumble Guys” extends our reach into new genres, demographics, and markets. 

“Stumble Guys” is one of the most social, deeply engaging multiplayer experiences that we have seen in a long time, with more than 1 billion hours of playtime to date.

The game connects people of all ages around the world – serving as a compelling digital playground that continues to delight players each day. 

In meeting Olli and the Kitka team, we immediately knew we shared a like-minded approach in shepherding long-term, community-driven relationships with players. We are excited that Kitka chose our team to further expand and help realize the full potential of the beloved experience. 

With community at its core, “Stumble Guys” embodies our strategic approach of investing in, creating, and live-operating games that resonate long-term with players, and we look forward to continuing to shepherd and expand the experience that players love.

A battle royale party game, “Stumble Guys” embodies an emerging genre that aligns perfectly with a mobile-first audience. The game features extremely fast-paced multiplayer gameplay; social mechanics that make playing with friends easy; a wide array of challenging levels; personalized and expressive collectibles, skins, emotes, and player avatars; discoverable rewards; and more. 

A competitive experience that is inclusive to everyone from beginners to experts allowing players with high mastery to perform unbelievable feats, the game also delivers market-leading technical capabilities for players to enjoy the most seamless experience possible. 

Our acquisition of “Stumble Guys” follows many years of transformative growth for Scopely due to the continued expansion of our long-term experiences that span many genres — from MMO/strategy to RPG to social PVP and more. Games include “Star Trek™ Fleet Command,” “WWE Champions,” “YAHTZEE With Buddies,” “MARVEL Strike Force,” “Tiki Solitaire TriPeaks,” and more. 

This acquisition further solidifies Scopely as one of the largest private independent games companies with market-leading experiences that are enjoyed by over 100 million players every month across mobile, web, and beyond.  

As a top 10 mobile publisher (data.ai’s 2022 rankings by consumer spend), we believe our success is driven by our unique approach to live-operating game experiences, proprietary technology platform Playgami, and proven track record of fostering engaged player communities. 

We are excited to share this news publicly, and look forward to a long, exciting journey with each and every “Stumble Guys” player.
