Digital Chocolate, one of the premier social games and mobile game makers in the US, announced they just raised $12 million in Series D funding. The question is what they’re going to do with this money, but I presume it’s going to be simple: make more games!
This round was led by Intel Capital and includes participation from prior investors Sutter Hill Ventures and Bridgescale Partners, and comes recently after an announcement that DC would be partnering with GetJar to bring some of their games to Android. Could this money be towards transferring more of their games to mobile?
2010 was big for DC, their games Millionaire City, MMA Pro Fighter and NanoStar series rocketed the company to the top 5 Facebook Game makers in the world.
“The investment from Intel Capital supports our vision of publishing leading social games across different devices and platforms,” said Trip Hawkins, founder and CEO of Digital Chocolate. “The strength of our team, combined with the strategic insight and support from Intel Capital and existing investors, will help extend our leadership in the evolving social gaming market.”
