Not to be content on just working in the United States, Gearbox Software has announced that it has expanded into Asian waters with Gearbox Studios Shanghai.
Though the company didn’t announce what the new studio would be working on, it did note that it would continue to produce the same AAA efforts that the original U.S. studios are doing, working on a similar beat.
“China is a hotbed of industry talent, and I’m confident Gearbox Studio Shanghai will be instrumental in our vision for international growth here at Gearbox,” said Yoon Im, president of Gearbox Publishing San Francisco. “With this addition, we greatly enhance our ability to engage with players in the Chinese market and work directly with local up-and-coming development studios.”
And Gearbox assured that the new studio will follow the same anti-crunch culture and competitive benefits that the other studios have.
“Bringing Gearbox’s vision and creative spirit to our local community is a goal we’re ready to take on,” said Gigi Ning, general manager of Gearbox Studio Shanghai. “Gearbox has so many fantastic stories to tell, and we’re excited to share those with the players here in China.” What’s more, they’re hiring!
