Montpellier, France – November 24, 2021
Plug in Digital, one of the game industry’s largest independent publishing and distribution companies, has orchestrated a $75mm funding round with Bridgepoint Development Capital, with financing provided by Eurazeo. Plug In Digital will continue to operate independently in the games space and expand its publishing and distribution portfolio, increasing its footprint in both the digital and physical space with global, multi-platform IP.
Plug In Digital was founded in 2012, quickly growing into a full-service games distributor and publisher for today’s most exciting games across PC, cloud, console and mobile platforms. The company’s two publishing labels, Dear Villagers and PID Games, boast an impressive portfolio that spans a variety of today’s most popular genres, reaching players across all platforms and delivering playful, distinctive and audacious games to global audiences.
Plug In Digital has seen a 50 percent+ yearly growth over the past five years, hitting a successful stride with its flagship publishing label Dear Villagers which has launched more than eight cross-platform, cross-gen titles into the global games marketplace since its inception in early 2019. One of its most recent titles, The Forgotten City, has been lauded by international critics for its unique, eye-catching design as well as its exceptional narrative and dialogue and has been a remarkable commercial hit. PID Games, the second label under the Plug In Digital umbrella, is focused on offering studios a flexible publishing or co-publishing support on PC, Console and Mobile. PID is on track to publish 30 games this year from its global development partners.
