4A Games has announced it will expand its “triple-A development capabilities” by opening a new studio in Malta. The studio also said it is working on “unannounced titles within the Metro universe as well as further, unannounced projects”.
The existing Kiev-based studio will continue to operate, however key members of the office including creative director and co-founder Andrew Prokhorov, and chief technical officer Oles Shishkovstov, will relocate to Malta.
“By basing our new headquarters in Malta, a member state of the EU, 4A Games will be able to better compete on the international stage,” said Dean Sharpe, 4A’s CEO and head of business development. “Malta offers fantastic incentives for game development, and we are confident 4A Games will be able to attract the very best talent from Ukraine, Malta and beyond.
“This marks the start of a new chapter for 4A Games,” added Prokhorov. “We are proud of our achievements as a young studio, and humbled by the response to our output so far. The team is looking forward to this new adventure.”
