Candy Crush Saga developer King has announced it will be opening a new office in Berlin in 2014. The studio head will be named in January.
“We’re thrilled to be opening a new studio in Berlin,” CEP Riccardo Zacconi said, in part. “Germany is home to an exceptional amount of games development talent and Berlin is one of Europe’s leading creative hubs, so we have no doubt that the Berlin studio will produce fantastic, fun casual games that can be enjoyed by millions of people around the world.”
“We’re looking forward to welcoming the very best of Germany’s creative talent to join the new studio.”
King currently has studios in Barcelona, Bucharest, London, Malmo and Stockholm. The company was valued at $5 billion following the success of the Candy Crush Saga, Bubble Witch Saga, and the Farm Hero Saga.
