Now Take 2 heads to Geneva

Since setting up outside the US a decade ago, Take 2 has run both its local and central operations from Windsor in Berkshire. But whilst the UK operation is to remain unchanged, all other staff have been consulted about a move to central Europe.

And whilst many are being offered positions at the new site, redundancies look inevitable based on circumstances at least.

Around 40 people work for the European company, the job functions being largely finance and administration. It is headed up by James Ellingford, who is expected to move with the company to Geneva.

The Take 2 empire in Europe includes subsidiaries in France, Germany, Italy, Benelux and Spain. The publishing operations reporting into it include Rockstar Games, 2K Games, 2K Sports and Global Star Software.

Electronic Arts was the first major games company to choose Geneva, as revealed by MCV last July and then eventually confirmed in September. It affected some 85 jobs previously based at the company’s UK base in Chertsey – including executive vice president of international publishing Gerhard Florin.
