Scopely picks up $340 million in Series E funding

At least 14 investors lend support to Star Trek Fleet Command company

Scopely has announced it has brought in $340 million in Series E funding from a group of at least 14 investors to build new partnerships and grow the company.

The funding round was supported by investors including Wellington Management, NewView Capital, TSG Consumer Partners, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, funds managed by BlackRock, D1, Battery Ventures, Eldridge, Declaration Partners, Moore Strategic Ventures, Greycroft, Baillie Gifford, Sands Capital, Revolution Growth, and Highland Capital Partners.

Scopely co-CEO Javier Ferreira said that the company would use the funding toward partnering with "like-minded teams and creators who want to shape the future of play."

This funding round comes almost exactly a year after the company's previous Series D funding round, during which Scopley raised $200 million toward mergers and acquisitions -- a number it later upped to $400 million thanks to additional investor support.

In the year since, Scopely acquired FoxNext and Cold Iron Studios from Disney, though it sold off Cold Iron later in the year.

It also picked up match-three developer Genjoy earlier this month.
