Gree announced that they are planning to open a new studio in Vancouver, complementing their push into North America which includes a new studio in San Francisco. This will be Gree’s seventh studio, and the company hopes it will release its first game in the next six to eight months.

“The goal for the Canadian studio is to merge the knowledge we gained from our recent successes with more experimental approaches,”  said Steve Lin, who will head up the studio. “We want to take some risks and come up with new games and ideas that will contribute to the ongoing evolution of the mobile game space.”

“The creative community in Vancouver has made tremendous contributions to the mobile and video game industry and we are looking forward to tapping into that talent pool and building a team of passionate innovators,” added Lin.
