Activision is opening a new publishing office in Seoul following its acquisition of CSR Entertainment's software distribution operations arm - which formerly distributed the publisher's products.

The new office is designed to help Activision to develop its presence in the Asia-Pacific region and to promote forthcoming titles such as Enemy Territory: Quake Wars.

"The establishment of a Korean publishing office represents an important and integral part of our Asian expansion strategy," commented John Watts, senior VP and MD for the Asia-Pacific region.

"We are committed to growing and strengthening our business operations in the region over the long-term to ensure that we have the expertise in place to leverage future opportunities."

Activision already has offices in the US, Canada, Japan and Australia, plus many countries across Europe. According to Watts, "Activision has had tremendous success in its direct publishing models in Spain and Italy over the past few years and this experience we are now applying within Asia."
