Serbia has a lot to offer in terms of talent, in particular tech professionals, we’re always on the lookout for high potential markets with the passion, skills and expertise to create the very best games, and Serbia’s reputation in several key fields makes this investment the perfect match.
We are bringing years of expertise to the Serbian market, and want to contribute to the development of the local gaming industry, as we did for the other countries in the region.
The newly opened Belgrade studio is mainly occupied by programmers, but further intends to expand and add other job types in the future, and also work with any of the nearby universities to engage the students who’re interested in a career with game development.
