CrossFire dev Smilegate closes Berlin office after just over one year

South Korean games developer Smilegate has made the decision to close its Berlin studio.

The office opened in February 2017, with the aim of pushing the company's Crossfire IP into Europe. The title has 650 million players around the world, with a concurrent player peak of a massive eight million users.

The location will be closed down by the middle of this year.

Company restructure

"The decision has been taken to implement Smilegate's new business strategy which foresees restructuring of certain parts of the business in the Smilegate group," a Smilegate spokesperson said, as reported by GamesIndustry.biz.
