Eutechnyx planning Dundee studio
Independent racing developer could invest in Scottish city by opening fifth studio
Gateshead-based independent racing studio Eutechnyx is considering opening a new office in Dundee, a city hit hard by the recent collapse of APB developer Realtime Worlds.
Eutechnyx already has bases in Gateshead, the US, Hong Kong and China, but is looking to continue its expansion following significant external investment in forthcoming racing MMO Auto Club Revolution.
Chief executive of Eutechnyx, Brian Jobling said: "We have been considering a studio in Scotland for some time, having worked with developers based there for a number of years. By forming a studio in Dundee developers who wish to remain in the area can do so, and have the opportunity to become part of a new chapter in Eutechnyx' future."
The company joins a list of publishers and studios who have extended offers of potential employment to Dundee's ex-Realtime Worlds staff, including Activision, which organised a career fair in the city last week.
