Here’s what Microsoft has to say regarding the new studio’s opening.
EMEA is a key market for us and we continue to cultivate the best talent and focus on growing our business, with this role focused on the continued expansion of our Microsoft Studios business in the region.
Also important to add is that the studio is hiring senior staff to run the studio. So, if you’re based there and qualified, now’s your change to join the Xbox 360 family.
Hopefully, this means more first-party games for the Xbox platform that we’re actually going to give a damn about, no?
