Microsoft is set to open a new games studio in London. The company is currently hiring senior staff to run the studio.
“EMEA is a key market for us and we continue to cultivate the best talent and focus on growing our business, with this role focused on the continued expansion of our Microsoft Studios business in the region,” the company told MCV.
Job listings for the studio suggest this new team will be working on more casual experiences, seeking employees with a history in both cloud and mobile gaming.
Microsoft already operates several studios in the UK, including Lionhead, Rare and Soho Productions.
