Koei Will Double Manpower in Singapore

Koei is looking to double the manpower at its Singapore studio.

The Japanese publisher, which is set to merge with Tecmo this April, has said it wants to add up to 60 more employees to its five-year-old studio in Singapore.

The studio currently has around 50 members, and is part of the blossoming development hot-spot in the region, with firms such as EA, LucasArts and Ubisoft all establishing studios there.

“We will not be satisfied until we further strengthen the development capabilities of the Singapore studio, both in quantity and in quality,” said Koei co-founder Keiko Erikawa.

“Our objective is to groom a pool of talented and passionate developers who want to do Singapore proud and work relentlessly towards creating best-selling titles targeted at the global audience,” she adds.
