Goodgame continues new look, appoints Ubisoft vet Simon Andrews to run new studio

The recruitment drive at Germany's largest game developer continues.

Hamburg-based Goodgame Studios has just appointed Simon Andrews as its head of studio.

Previously with Spanish developer Bee Square, Andrews started his career with EA Sports, also working with Ubisoft - being studio manager for its Vancouver office - and launching over 100 triple-A console games and 3 mobile titles during that time.

Better Goodgame

The move follows Goodgame's recent restructuring, which split its operations into independently-run entities, to enable faster and more efficient production processes.

As part of that move, the company recently also announced it had formed a casual games studio.

"We are pleased to welcome Simon Andrews as Head of Studio at Goodgame Studios. Andrews brings valuable experience and knowledge through his work at several prestigious companies," said Dominik Willers, chief innovation officer at Goodgame Studios.

"This will be essential especially in view of establishing a new team, thus making him a perfect candidate to lead our new studio."
