Work for hire games company Amber is opening a brand new studio in Kyiv, Ukraine.
The venture is being headed up by general manager Matthew Manolovits, who previously worked at Ubisoft Odesa as a studio production manager.
“Amber strives to be the development agency of choice for the games industry, by delivering world-class creative services out of its international studios,” Amber CEO Jaime Gine said.
“An extensive talent pool within a thriving games community, and a strong cultural link with our other Eastern European locations, made it a logical decision for Amber to expand its operations into Ukraine, creating a new platform for growth. Our presence in the Ukrainian market will not only strengthen our creative capacity, but also send a timely and strong message of our support for our team in Kyiv and the wider Ukranian game dev ecosystem.”
Manolovits added: “Amber’s growth into Ukraine is such an exciting opportunity, offering Ukraine’s most talented game developers a chance to contribute to massive games & cutting-edge technology on a global scale. Our goal for Amber Ukraine is to be the primary partner for AAA and PC games development, offering our expertise in Engineering, Art & Animation, Design & Production to create & contribute to the most innovative & engaging games in the Industry. Thanks to the talent of our teammates & future colleagues throughout Ukraine, combined with Amber’s strong leadership and ambitions, I have full confidence that we have the means and expertise to develop Amber Ukraine into a diverse and developed world-class Studio.
