Barcelona is a hotbed for international video game and is moving forward to become the next European hub of technology and gaming. The Mediterranean city continues to attract the world’s largest video game companies thanks to its winning combination of talent and quality of life.

 

Swiss video game company FunPlus, one of the largest independent mobile game companies in the world, strengthens its commitment to Barcelona. The company has announced the opening of a new studio in the Catalan capital and plans to hire 120 employees, as part of its expansion plans. These are qualified professional profiles who will work as video game developers, designers, programmers and artists.  

 

This expansion project will make the Barcelona FunPlus studio the company’s only one in Europe focused on creating and publishing casual video games for mobile devices.
