Frontier Developments expands into new offices

British developer Frontier Developments has announced that it is set to move to new larger offices on the Cambridge Science Park, with a view to accommodating all of its development staff under one roof.

The firm, which now employs 85 staff, is currently recruiting for a number of new positions, and fresh from the success of the last Rollercoaster Tycoon game, is hoping to grow its roster of products in the near future.

"It's an exciting time for Frontier," enthused managing director David Walsh, "with a very strong mix of titles in production related to a number of top franchises, including our original IP and work on next generation consoles and handhelds."

"We take a long term view of our business and the new offices give us the physical space we need to grow as well as offering top-class infrastructure," he explained, "including high-speed connections to the Internet backbone, and even closer proximity to a highly talented workforce."

The company is currently working on two announced projects, namely the first expansion pack for Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, titled Soaked!, and a multi-format console game based on the forthcoming Wallace and Gromit movie, Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

"We've firmly established ourselves as one of the most creative and reliable game studios in the world over a long period," according to studio founder David Braben. "Our teams thrive on the challenges of delivering high quality, innovative games on time. The world of game development is about to go through another major transition in its short history and Frontier is ready to meet the challenges and opportunities that are on the horizon."
