Epic Games is looking to bolster its publishing operations in Europe and Russia with the opening of a new office in Germany.
As reported by Develop, the new office will be based in Berlin and led by Paw Larsen and Steam Spy founder Sergey Galyonkin, who will serve as Epic’s publishing directors for Western and Eastern Europe respectively.
Epic president Paul Meegan believes the best way for the company to serve its players in Europe is to have a larger local presence.
“Our European and Russian community is important to us,” said Meegan “and establishing our Berlin office is the first step to ensuring they’ll have a great day one experience with our games.”
Following the announcement, Galyonkin took to NeoGAF to ease the concerns of Steam Spy users, explaining there’s a clause in his contract that allows him to continue working on the analytics platform.
