Talking Tom developer Outfit7 has announced the creation of a new studio located in Barcelona, Spain. The studio will officially open in January of next year.
The Barcelona location will be headed up by current senior director of design and animation Dani Bajc. Bajc will lead the team there in both creating new Talking Tom mobile games, as well as other unannounced titles.
"This is an exciting time for the company and for myself," said Bajc. "I'm really passionate about mobile games. I believe we're going to create a great new team in Barcelona, one that will share the fun with our users through our games. The city has an impressive creative talent pool and growing gaming scene. We're looking forward to being part of it and sharing our knowledge, expertise and innovative company culture."
Outfit7 is headquartered in London and also has existing locations in Slovenia (where the company was founded), Cyprus, Hong Kong, and Beijing. The company was acquired last year by Chinese company Zhejiang Jinke Entertainment Culture Company, a former chemical company that entered entertainment with the acquisition.
