InnoGames Opens New Dev Studio in Dusseldorf, Germany
InnoGames has announced today that it will open a new development studio on in DÃ¼sseldorf, Germany on January 1, 2015. InnoGames plans to employ up to 50 people at the new location. The headquarters will remain in Hamburg. Increased revenue is part of the reason InnoGames is opening the new development studio. Forge of Empires has been very successful for them.
â€œWith Forge of Empires we managed to establish InnoGames as a mobile game developer - with the iPad-Version alone we generate revenue in the seven digits. This is the financial foundation for our continued sustained growthâ€, explains Armin Busen, CFO at InnoGames. He added that mobile revenue increased by 500%, in comparison to 2013.
Hendrik Klindworth, InnoGamesâ€™ founder and CEO points out: â€œFor further growth, we need a number of highly skilled people across all departments. And it gets more and more complicated to find them in Hamburg alone. DÃ¼sseldorf is a very promising location with lots of potential for the job marketâ€. Klindworth points out that Hamburg will always remain the companyâ€™s headquarters and will also continue hiring additional people.
