To date, Raptr has raised a total of $27 million. The new round of funding will be used to rapidly expand Raptr’s offerings with new features that build on its gaming community. Raptr is the fastest growing social networking platform for gamers, and millions of gamers use Raptr to track their games and achievements for PC, Xbox, and PS3; chat and browse the web in-game; and see what their friends are playing via iPhone.
