D.C.-based Revolution was the lead investor in a $60 million funding round for a mobile gaming platform.

The Series C round for Scopely comes less than 12 months after its $55M Series B round. With the latest funding, Revolution’s Donn Davis will join the company’s board of directors.

“Scopely has built a unique and powerful platform to successfully develop, market, and monetize free-to-play mobile games,” Davis said in a statement.

The company, which is based in Los Angeles, Calif., published The Walking Dead: Road to Survival.

“The opportunity to work with the founding team of AOL is extremely exciting for us as they have a long history of operating at the intersection of technology and media,” said Scopely cofounder Walter Driver in a statement.

The round also included participation by Greenspring Associates of Owings Mills, Md., Sands Capital Ventures, Cross Creek Advisors, and Pritzker Group Venture Capital.
