Arctic7 opening new studio in Barcelona

Co-development outfit Arctic7 is opening a new studio in Barcelona, Spain.

This outfit is set to open its doors in early 2014 and will be led by Kedhrin Gonzalez, who also helms the company's Montenegro studio. Arctic7 is working on a third-person action title built on Unreal Engine 5. 

“At Arctic7 Europe, while we continue to focus on building strong partnerships for our co-development work, we're always trying to think of ways to push forward our skills and fuel our passion for making great games for partners," Gonzalez said.

"This project is a direct result of that passion and draws on the teams’ experience working on some of the world’s leading games such as Halo, Rainbow Six series and more.”

Arctic7 CEO Igor Efremov added: “Over the past year, we have significantly grown our full game, co-development and virtual production capabilities as we look to establish a leadership position in the space and all focused on delivering great entertainment experiences for our partners and players. We are proud to announce that we are continuing to grow Arctic7 in Barcelona, which will be an additional hub for both full game development and co-development projects. I believe the historic city of Barcelona will be a great steppingstone forwards, giving us access to a rich talent pool so that we can turn out even more entertainment experiences."

Arctic7 was founded in 2022.
