Tokyo and Florida bases set to aid expansion of portfolio

Ignition to open new studios in Japan and USA

Ignition has opened two new studios, one in Tokyo Japan and another in Florida, USA, to help aid the growth of its product portfolio.

The studios will be charged with creating new IPs for next-gen formats. Ignition has one other studio, UK-based Digi-Guys.

In an official announcement Ignition said the new teams will aim to push "far beyond the confines of conventional ‘next-gen’ thinking and produce unique, innovative and platform leading videogames and digital content across all media, utilising a broad spectrum of games & movie CG experience".

Vijay Chadha, Ignition Entertainment CEO and co-founder, added: "This is an important time for us. With the addition of these new studios we will increase our capacity for producing original product. The opening of both Ignition Florida and Tokyo is a stepping stone to building a stronger and more focused development group. These studios are an important addition to the company and will be a solid foundation on which future plans will be built."
