You may remember from our last blog that Scopely, the mobile publisher, recently invested heavily into Digit Games Studio. Scopely announced that it had made a multi-million dollar investment into the game developer. Things are looking up with the new partnership now allowing for Digit Games Studio to staff up.
The Scopely deal has allowed the company to expand their horizons and branch out from their current hit game Kings of the Realm. On top of releasing this chart-topping casual game that has led the way on Google Play and the App Store with Digital Game Studios strong development experience, they now expect to start developing another game. The developer has high hopes for the new game and it will be published by Scopely.
As part of the move, the team is looking towards expansion. Digit Games Studios is said to be aiming to triple their headcount. Going from being a strong 20 staffed company to 60 can only be a promising move for the company.
The Digit Games Studio CEO Richard Barnwell says “Content is the richest source of value in this industry and we are delighted to have significant opportunity to create a lot of it. We are adding to our team to help us do just that,”.
He says that in addition their current hit Kings of the Realm, they will be increasing the size of their studio in order to launch the all new title. The new launch will be with the world-leading AAA IP and has the potential to be large.
It is no doubt a promising time for the developer and we will definitely look forward to seeing more of the strategy games launch in the future. For more information on jobs that are available visit the Digit Game Studios website.
