Digit Game Studios has been acquired by Los Angeles-based Scopely in May 2019 for an undisclosed sum.

Digit, which employes around 70 people in Dublin, was founded in 2012 and specialises in mobile games.

The companies recently collaborated on the Star Trek franchise, which reportedly generated $50m in revenue in the first four months of its availability.

Scopely was already a minority shareholder in Digit, with other backers including Enterprise Ireland, Delta Partners and ACT Venture.
