Build A Rocket Boy to open Montpellier studio

The new office will open next year

Build A Rocket Boy will be opening a new studio in Montpellier, France, in 2023.

The announcement didn't specify whether the new office will be focusing on a particular area, only that it's opening to "accommodate the expanding needs of the global development team."

It's also unclear at this stage who will be heading the new location, with the press release only mentioning an "industry veteran line up" without giving names.

Build A Rocket Boy was created in 2017 as Royal Circus Games by former Rockstar producer Leslie Benzies. The company raised $40.8 million in 2020 towards the development of its debut project, open-world sci-fi game Everywhere.

It currently has offices in Edinburgh, its headquarter, and Budapest.

Earlier this year, Build A Rocket Boy stirred some controversy when it looked to hire blockchain developers. At the time, the company said that these were only "research positions."
