Eidos opens Shanghai base

Publish date:

SCi-owned Eidos is the latest to expand its operations into Asia with the opening a new office in Shanghai, China.

The firm responsible for the likes of Tomb Raider, Hitman and Championship Manager has established the new operation, wholly-owned by Eidos, to aid its studio's outsourcing opportunities.

Eidos Shanghai has opened with a small team of experts in game design, production, art direction and programming headed by Christine Thaarup, worldwide studio outsourcing manager at the firm and former producer at its Denmark-based IO Interactive studio.

As general manager of Eidos Shanghai, she will be looking to work with "the very best partners" as the publisher/developer, fresh from its studio-focused restructuring, looks to keep costs down via outsourcing.
