Rovio Opens MMO Games studio in London

Rovio, creators of Angry Birds, is to open a new studio in London focused on massively multiplayer online games, or MMOs.

In a statement Mark Sorrell, Head of Studio, said, “We believe that the best game experiences are those that you share with other people.  So we’re starting a studio to do exactly this. We look forward to bringing a diverse team together to deliver unique MMOs that are creative, inclusive and delightful.”

Rovio currently operates four in-house studios (three in Finland and one in Sweden) as well as maintaining a global network of developer partnerships.

Rovio London is looking to build a team of twenty members in what is described as a “Nordic working environment in Central London”.

Antti Viitanen, SVP Studios, said, “Our business is profitably growing and London is the most logical place for us to found a new studio that will complement our overall global mix of internal and external developers. London is also a fantastically diverse talent magnet.”
