On January the 16th, Rovio Entertainment announced they would be expanding their in-house studio capacity, with a move to London. Rovio Entertainment, which is best known for Angry Birds, is based out of Espoo, Finland. The company recently delved into new medium with the release of The Angry Birds Movie in May of 2016. While the company gained enormous success with Angry Birds, their London-based team will focus on MMO, massively multiplayer online, games. The studio will also focus on creating new IP, which goes well beyond the Angry Bird realm.
With the addition of the London Studio, the company now has four other in-house studios. Three are located in Espoo, with another in Stockholm, Sweden. During the course of two years, the London team will assemble a collaborative team of at least twenty members. The company is currently looking for developers in the area. Those interested in experiencing a Nordic working environment near Central London will want to check out the company’s open position.
