That’s a big deal for Scopely, which has grown to a multibillion-dollar valuation on the strength of its mobile games, as it is Scopely’s first PC game. It will be available as a direct download.
Scopely is taking its hit mobile game Star Trek: Fleet Command to the PC as part of a new cross-platform strategy.
It’s a strategy that more mobile game companies are pursuing as targeted advertising on iOS becomes uncertain due to Apple’s focus on privacy, as well as more demands from fans that their favorite games be available on more than one platform that they use.
The latter is the reason that Scopely acknowledges as a reason for its first PC game, but rival Zynga also made a similar move to acquire a PC game company as it moved beyond mobile for the first time in years. Zynga also said its earnings have become more uncertain thanks to Apple’s move.
This is a new strategy, as Scopely picked up the assets of Fox Next Games in 2020, but it decided not to purchase Fox Next’s Cold Iron Studios, the maker of the just-launched co-op game Aliens: Fireteam Elite, a PC game.
Created by Scopely and its Scopely Studio Digit, the company launched the game along with ViacomCBS in November 2018.
The 4X strategy massively multiplayer online (MMO) title is the No. 1 Star Trek game experience today. Home to a passionate and loyal player community who spend an average of five hours every day exploring and conquering the multiverse together in-game, Star Trek: Fleet Command has seen more than 14 billion battles and over 500 million hours played to date.
