Euro Microsoft Game Studios Set To Open

Microsoft has today announced plans to establish a European extension of Microsoft Game Studios. The new arm of the company will operate out of Reading, UK. MS boast that the new office will help to strengthen their focus on growing the popularity of MGS-published content in the Euro region. The also hope their new offices will help nurture relationships with European development talent and as a result hopefully provide the company with new exclusive games and possibly some brand new innovative titles down the line. The European offices will open their shiny new doors on May 9th and will be headed by Phil Spencer.

Europe is obviously very important to our platform efforts and an area where have a strong history of working with some of the best game industry talent. I’m very excited about what we’ve accomplished in Europe and I look forward to continuing and strengthening that success by building deeper relationships with the development community here,” said Spencer as he sung around in his new chair… well that the picture I have in my mind anyway.
