Infinity Ward has announced that it is opening up a new studio located in Krakow, Poland.
The Call of Duty developer says the new branch, aptly named Infinity Ward Poland, will focus primarily on research and development while also working closely with the developer's Los Angeles team.
“We’re thrilled to announce the expansion of our development capabilities with the opening of Infinity Ward Poland,” said Infinity Ward studio head Dave Stohl. “We’re building a world-class R&D studio that will tap into the creative local game development culture and talent in Poland."
The announcement comes the same year that a number of Activision Blizzard-owned developers were hit with layoffs, including Infinity Ward who lost 20 team members following the launch of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
