September 15th, 2009: Firebrand Games, the International handheld development specialist responsible for Dirty 2, GRID, TrackMania and the up-coming DS release Planet 51, today announced the expansion and relocation of its European HQ.

With significant investment in its locations in Florida and Glasgow, the continued expansion of Firebrand Games has necessitated the need to secure new space to accommodate the growing team in Scotland.

Mark Greenshields, Firebrand CEO, commented“With the continued expansion of the teams within Firebrand, and the on-going need to develop and deliver cutting edge and exciting handheld product to the global publishing community, we feel that the time is now right to move the European studio to larger office space.” He went on“As well as being able to deliver great handheld IP, the management teams are also focusing on staff retention and well-being. As a service industry the staff is our number one asset, and this move reflects our continued commitment to ensuring that Firebrand remains a first-class working environment.”

The new address for Firebrands Glasgow studio is: Central Chambers, Suite 227-231, 93 Hope St, Glasgow G2 6LD
