Cork branch to be responsible for European roll-out of free-to-play shooter FireFall

Red 5 Studios has opened its new European headquarters in Ireland creating 30 jobs, the company has revealed.

The new offices in Cork will be responsible for the European rollout of the developer’s upcoming free-to-play shooter Firefall, expected to be released this year.

The Ireland base will initially provide customer support, community management and localisation services for the title.

"I'm really happy to break new ground for Red 5 in Cork, Ireland,” said Red 5 Studios CEO Mark Kern.

“We see so many passionate European gamers in our forums and we want to support them with everything we can.

“Red 5 Ireland will be like a start-up in many ways for us, and the local team we're hiring will be essential in bringing the Red 5 culture to Europe and defining the European player experience."
