Back-end services provider PlayFab has opened a new office in Berlin, Germany.
The move is part of plans to provide better support for European developers. Nearly a third of the company’s clients are based in the region. Studios using its services include UK outfit Viewpoint Games and Spain-based dev 8-Bit Games.
In total PlayFab has more than 7,000 developers and ten million players registered on its platform. 1,000 of those developers are based in Europe.
"European developers comprise a significant portion of our customer base, and the interest in our platform has reached a point that requires more local support," said PlayFab CEO James Gwertzman.
"Establishing a formal presence in Europe with a dedicated team will allow us to better serve the region and help drive the innovation that European developers are so well known for."
PlayFab has also released new features to its back-end platform. New APIs now support content management and virtual item trading, and a number of productivity and usability enhancements have been made to the Game Manager, including improved two-factor authentication and a streamlined interface.
