Hugo Games have announced they are opening a new studio in Berlin, Germany. The studio will be led by Moritz Voss, the former technology lead at mobile powerhouse King.
Hugo Games CEO Henrik Nielsen said in the press release:
“We consider the hire of Moritz Voss as our new studio lead as a major coup because of his track record at King studio – one of the most successful mobile gaming companies in the world.”
“Moritz Voss was instrumental in building a game studio in Berlin from scratch to over 80 people and we are very proud that he now has joined us for a new challenge at Hugo Games – bringing together a highly experienced Berlin team in the coming months. The timing is perfect because Hugo Games is the first mobile developer to be granted the permission to build a puzzle game around the iconic ‘The Adventures of Tintin’ comic book franchise.”
Part of the reason for placing a studio in Berlin is the rise of the city becoming the European mobile game development hotspot.
