Improbable, the UK tech startup that’s had tongues wagging since it burst onto the scene in recent years, has upscaled its office space – moving from one London spot in Farringdon, to another in Spitalfields, Tower Hamlets.
The decision to move, as explained in a blog post, came about simply because of a need for more space – the company currently sits at the 320 employee mark, and the new premises has space for up to 500 staff across 58,000 square feet.
Herman Narula, CEO and co-founder of Improbable, said: “We have been working hard to hire the best and have grown a lot in the last few years. Improbable has simply outgrown our first central London office. Our new office will be a place where we can focus on enabling our partners and community to create the next generation of online games and simulations using SpatialOS.”
The move won’t come as much of a surprise to those paying attention to the company, which has seen marked growth in the past few months alone. Chinese firm Netease invested some $100 million (£77m) in the company back in July, while September saw the opening of a new North American office for Improbable, as well as the hiring of former Bioware general manager Aaryn Flynn.
No games have yet been released in finished form using Improbable’s SpatialOS, with Bossa’s World’s Adrift available in Early Access and other titles planned for releases – early or otherwise –through 2019.
