PES studio to be founded in UK
Konami said today it’s recruiting for a UK-based Pro Evolution Soccer dev studio.
Konami announced today that it’s looking for talent to work for a new, dedicated PES Production studio which will be based in the UK.
“Konami has reaffirmed its commitment to its Pro Evolution Soccer series with a large-scale commitment that will see a dedicated European wing of the Tokyo-based PES Productions team established within Europe,” said the firm.
“The new satellite office will strive to adopt and recreate local football culture that will ensure the long-running series is kept fresh and exciting. Work is already underway to recruit key talent for the new studio, and Konami will be inviting interested parties to apply for posts at this year’s Games Developer Conference Europe (GDC Europe), which will be held in Cologne between August 13-14.”
The new studio will be based in London, and will focus on PES projects for “high-end consoles and PCs.”
“These are hugely exciting times for the PES series,” commented Shinji Hirano, the President of Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “We are looking for a number of creative people who can help us elevate PES to whole new levels. As part of KONAMI’s commitment to ensuring PES captures the majesty of European football, we are looking for people to help capture the very essence of the beautiful game and bring it to life. We look forward to meeting interested parties at GDC Europe.”
