Rovio opens London-based MMO studio with a new IP


Angry Birds creator Rovio is branching out into the MMO market. The company announced that it has opened a new studio in London devoted to creating massively multiplayer online games. The studio already is focused on the creation of a new, unnamed IP as its first project.

Head of Studio Mark Sorrell explains the focus behind this studio, team, and project: “We believe that the best game experiences are those that you share with other people. So we’re starting a studio to do exactly this. We look forward to bringing a diverse team together to deliver unique MMOs that are creative, inclusive and delightful.”

With this move, Rovio now has five studios operating across Europe. The London studio is looking to hire and cultivate a team of 20 members over the next couple of years.
