Million Victories raises $3m in Series A funding

French mobile startup will use funds to accelerate growth and increase studio headcount

Mobile gaming studio Million Victories has raised $3 million in a round of Series A funding led by venture capital firm Griffin Gaming Partners

Million Victories aims to use the money to fuel its growth, recruit more talent, and develop more titles to add to its portfolio of strategy titles.

The Lyon-based studio is best known as the makers of Million Lords, an online multiplayer strategy title for mobile that has been downloaded over 500,000 times.

"We appreciate Griffin Gaming Partners' approach and their support during this round," said Million Victories co-founder and CEO Benoît Ducrest. "It's uncommon for an American venture capital fund to support a French company in our sector. It's with great ambition that we start the next phase of our development, in France as well as in the United States."

Partner and Griffin Gaming Partners Pierre Planche added: "We are thrilled to partner closely with Million Victories; Benoît and the team understand what it takes to make a great mobile game and especially in the 4X strategy category. They have quickly proved industry leading metrics with Million Lords, and their roadmap ahead will provide additional exciting experiences for their current title and beyond."
