Mobile game developer Scopely Inc. is expanding its footprint in Europe, more than tripling its office space in Spain and upgrading an existing facility in Dublin.

The Culver City-based mobile game company will relocate to a new office in Spain, adding roughly 19,000 square feet and occupying the entire office space at Plaça de Catalunya in Barcelona’s Sarrià-Sant Gervasi district.

The company’s facilities in Ireland, which house roughly 80 employees, will expand by 8,000 square feet. Scopely added its Ireland office after acquiring Dublin-based game developer Digit Game Studios Ltd. in May.

"Our Dublin and Barcelona teams play a critical role in the Scopely journey, and we are actively hiring across both markets," Chief Executive Javier Ferreira said in a statement. “We are thrilled to expand our European footprint to accommodate our exponential growth,” Ferreira added.

Scopely’s expansions are being fueled by robust fundraising. It closed a $160 million Series C funding round in June 2018 and has raised $250 million from venture investors since its 2011 founding. Its 2018 revenue rose 80% year over year.

In April, Scopely announced it plans to double the size of its Los Angeles office space by late 2020.
