Raptr roars past six million members and secures additional $15M financing

It’s amazing to see how far Raptr has come in the last year. Today, we are pleased to announce two major milestones regarding our growth. Raptr has officially over 6 million members and we’ve just secured an additional $15 million in funding.

With this money and growth, we hope to bring even more features to gamers. You might have seen more press coverage regarding our game tracking app or our Raptr Reports, which highlight interesting playtime trends we see from our user base. If you are a regular reader of GameSpot, GamePro, or 1UP, you likely noticed Raptr’s game tracking widget featured on their site. However, this isn’t the time for us to sit back and just watch our numbers grow. We’re committed to bringing something that you’ll find useful and engaging, and we’re only just getting started. We have a lot of things cooking, so if you want to work at an awesome company, join our team!

If you love checking out stats and figures (and we know you do), we put together a handy infographic that summarizes some fascinating figures regarding Raptr. You can check out the infographic here.

Of course, we wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for you, our community. Thanks for making Raptr part of your life. Thanks for helping us troubleshoot bugs and coming up with great feedback on how to make the product better. Thanks for making us awesome.

Finally, we want to give a shout out to our investors and board of directors for believing in our grand vision. Special thanks to DAG Ventures, Tenaya Capital, Accel Partners, the Founders Fund, as well as Max and James.

We’re happy to be able to say that Raptr is the fastest growing social networking platform for gamers. Stay tuned, because we are only just getting started. We promise you won’t be disappointed.

    I’ve advocated Raptr ever since I discovered it, and never doubted for a second you’d reach this level of awesomeness!

    Keep it up!

    Can you use a few hundred (if it even costs that much) out of that $15 million to make an Android app or are you going to keep leaving us Android users in the dark?

  8. JustJayde says:

    Awesome :D It has been fun watching raptr grow up into a big handsome dino ;)

  9. Absolutely fantastic news. When i started using raptr, a knew it was fantastic by just seeing the IM In-Game system and better yet, unlike others that have tried, IT WORKED!! Much better than X-Fire and one of, if not THE best essential must have app for any gamer on almost any system.

    Keep up the good work guys, You deserve that $15m ;)

  11. MAC PLEASE says:

    awesome, but please we need ps3 trophies tracked on mac

  12. Eric Mesa says:

    Congrats guys!

    With all the new money and attention, here’s my feature request list:
    1) allow me to have a page where all my games are ranked. Right now I can only see the top 6 games.
    2) get Sony to let you auto-track PS3 games. Having to enter it manually is annoying.
    and, in the dream world
    3) track games on Linux

  13. Josh says:
