DIGIT Game Studios to triple in size

DIGIT Game Studios

DIGIT Game Studios, which employs 20 people at their Dublin studio, has launched a recruitment drive to grow this number to 60. The announcement of 40 new vacancies coincides with the company securing multi-million dollar investment from US mobile game publisher Scopely.

Founded in 2012 in Dublin, today DIGIT is Ireland’s largest game development studio. The company launched their first game, Kings of the Realm, in September 2014. An engaging fantasy strategy MMO with innovative 3D gameplay, Kings of the Realm is the world’s first cross-platform game.

“Content is the richest source of value in this industry and we are delighted to have significant opportunity to create a lot of it,” said Richard Barnwell, founder and CEO, Digit Game Studios.

“We are adding to our team to help us do just that. In addition to Kings of the Realm, we are scaling up our studio to launch an all-new title with iconic, world-leading AAA IP, that has a chance to be huge.”

LA-based touchscreen entertainment network Scopely lately revealed a strategic partnership with Digit Game Studios whereby the US-based firm will make a multi-million dollar investment in Ireland’s largest game developer as part of the multi-game publishing deal.

“Scopely is the partner of choice for the world’s leading free-to-play game developers,” said Tim O’Brien, Chief Revenue Officer, Scopely.

“We look to partner with the world’s leading mobile game developers of specific genres. Digit clearly has some bold ambitions and the development approach they have exhibited to date is impressive. They boast an accomplished and engaged international team that has managed to build a fresh gaming experience from the ground up. We believe they are emerging as a leader in mobile strategy games.”
