DeNA expands its North American operations with new Vancouver office
Support for Mobage games and platform
To be headed up by Irfan Virk, currently CEO of DeNA-owned US outfit Gameview, DeNA Studios Canada will be located in Vancouver and open in March.
DeNA says the start up will focus on developing, supporting and operating its first party mobile social games on its Mobage platform.
It will raise 600,000 Canadian dollars in terms of initial capitalisation.
"We are excited to begin operations with the great talent in Vancouver," Virk commented.
"DeNA anticipates the new studio will meaningfully contribute to augmenting the whole group's game development and operating capabilities."
The move follows similar studio acquisitions in Latin America, Vietnam, Holland as well as office openings in Singapore, Korea and China and Sweden.
