Second Dinner, the developer behind Marvel Snap, secures $100 million in a Series B funding round

Renowned game development studio Second Dinner, recognized for its digital collectible card game Marvel Snap, has achieved a significant milestone by announcing a $100 million Series B funding round. The financing is led by Griffin Gaming Partners, a venture capital firm with a track record of supporting companies like AppLovin and Discord.

Founded in 2018 by former Hearthstone developers Ben Brode and Hamilton Chu, Second Dinner has rapidly ascended to prominence. Marvel Snap, launched in June 2022, stands as a testament to their success, boasting an impressive 22 million downloads and generating $200 million in revenue.

A pivotal moment for Marvel Snap occurred in August when the game expanded to Steam, establishing itself as a fully cross-platform experience available on Android, iOS, macOS, and Steam.

Despite the recent ByteDance divestment from Nuverse, Second Dinner assured players that Marvel Snap’s operations remain unaffected. The studio plans to leverage the substantial capital infusion to further enhance Marvel Snap and embark on the development of undisclosed new titles.

Expressing gratitude for the global player support, co-founder and Chief Development Officer Ben Brode highlighted the ongoing evolution of Marvel Snap. CEO Hamilton Chu emphasized that the investment not only strengthens their capabilities but also underscores their commitment to creating exceptionally enjoyable games. In a playful note, Chu added that the investment also buys a lot of boba, injecting a lighthearted touch into the studio’s ambitious endeavors.

“This investment not only boosts our capacity and gives us capital to jump on any great opportunities that might come our way, but most importantly, solidifies our commitment to making the most fun games ever! It also buys a lot of boba. So that’s a plus,” Chu said.

The Series B funding round marks a pivotal moment for Second Dinner, propelling the studio into an exciting phase of growth and innovation in the ever-expanding world of digital gaming.
