Keywords Studios expands to Philippines

Services company takes over Manila outfit as part of Ankama partnership

Keywords Studios has acquired the business of Ankama Asia Pte Ltd, consisting of a single studio in Manila, as part of a larger deal with the French developer and publisher.

Ankama, which operates Wakfu, Dofus and Tactile Wars, as well as producing animations, comics and board games, is ceding control of the Manila office to Keywords in an outsourcing arrangement which will involve a at least four years of service provision to Ankama. Keywords also plans to expand the 23 person outfit in order to establish a stronger presence in the region.

"This mutually beneficial outsourcing arrangement with one of our established clients enables Ankama to benefit from the support of a trusted and efficient partner, while it gives Keywords a platform from which it can grow its presence in Asia with the benefit of the certainty of a four year contract," said Keywords CEO Andrew Day.

"The Philippines is a well-established territory for the provision of competitively priced support services, and the strong standard of English and high calibre service culture makes Manila an attractive location from which to continue to grow our English language customer and live operations support services offering."
