GRIN, one of Scandinavia’s largest developers, is to open a new office in Gothenberg, Sweden.

The new 700 square metre studio will be the second Swedish studio for the company, which also has offices in Stockholm, Jakarta and Barcelona. It currently employs 190 staff across its various locations, and will be recruiting more for its new location.

”Our ambition is to be better, faster and more fun to work with than other developers and we want to spread that ambition to the Gothenburg region. We’ve had a very successful year and our goal is to continue the success with the opening of a new a studio in Gothenburg,” said Bo Andersson, CEO of GRIN.

Peter Björklund, GRIN Gothenburg’s lead gameplay programmer, added: ”Gothenburg has a long tradition of games development but has been missing a really established development house in recent years. With GRIN’s bold move we will be reinstating Gothenburg as a high profile development region.”
