New studio hires veteran dev to lead expansion into core games

Konami’s Cox joins Fish in a Bottle

Former Konami studio head David Cox has joined digital production company Fish in a Bottle in an effort to grow its core games business. 

Cox worked at Konami for 17 years, joining in 1997 as UK product manager. He then rose to European product manager in 1999, before becoming studio head and producer in 2006 via stints as a director and producer.

“I joined Fish in a Bottle because it’s a studio with big ambitions to grow in delivering core games services to the market,” Cox said.

“With the success of titles like Hitman Go and Fallout Shelter, it’s clear that there is a real opportunity for publishers and developers to have companion content that not only supports key releases but can be incredibly compelling in its own right.”

Fish in a Bottle’s MD Justin Eames added: “Dave shares our vision for the potential of taking our expertise in working with games and interactivity for global entertainment brands and applying that within the core games market. Dave is uniquely positioned to lead our expansion into that area.”
