GREE goes to London: new studio in UK capital

UK chancellor George Osborne will later today announce that mobile games giant GREE will open a UK studio in London

The news means the Japanese mobile giant will joint a long list of established studios in the UK capital, plus newcomers Amazon, Facebook, Konami, Xbox and YouTube – who all last week detailed plans to open new UK offices that would employ British games developers and engineers.

Word is expected out of today’s UKTI’s Global Business Summit on ICT in London.

Osborne will make the announcement as part of a ‘triple whammy’ detailing other investments in London offices fromVodafone and Barclays.

GREE is expected to detail that it will opena new game development studio in the UK – it currently has temporary developer relations offices in Covent Garden – with an eventual relocation in September to a new office in Tech City, aka ‘Silicon Roundabout’ in the East End.
