“This big step supports our stated vision to be the world’s leading interactive entertainment company; offering innovative products & services. Our qualitative research and understanding of these markets developed over the last few years has convinced us to make available our unique offerings and to present an overall brand experience built around Game4u to these consumers,” said Milestone Interactive Group chairman and CEO Jayont R Sharma.
These offices will also open up Milestone’s game publishing buisness to developers in both regions.
“I believe our presence in these markets will further become a cornerstone of our growth in the immediate future,” Sharma added.
