Epic Games has opened a new office in Germany aimed at strengthening its publishing arms in Europe and Russia.
The Berlin-based location will be led by Paw Larsen and Sergey Galyonkin, directors for publishing in Western and Eastern Europe, respectively.
Larsen previously headed up eSports publishing for League of Legends studio Riot Games, while Galyonkin was a senior analyst at World of Tanks developer Wargaming before joining Epic.
“The best way to serve our players is to have a local presence,” said Epic president Paul Meegan.
“Our European and Russian community is important to us, and establishing our Berlin office is the first step to ensuring they’ll have a great day one experience with our games.”
