Following last week's news that Dundee, Scotland-based game developer Realtime Worlds had entered into administration, that region of the UK was in need of some good news, not to mention an infusion of jobs, and now, help just might be on the way.
Developer Eutechnyx, best known for its output of racing games like Big Mutha Truckers, Street Racing Syndicate and Supercar Challenge is looking to add a new studio to its repertoire and wants to put it in Dundee.
In a press release on its website, the company said that after securing “substantial investment earlier this year for its latest MMO Auto Club Revolution,” the company “has gone through one of the biggest periods of growth in its 23 year history.”
Eutechnyx CEO Brian Jobling stated, “By forming a studio in Dundee developers who wish to remain in the area can do so, and have the opportunity to become part of a new chapter in Eutechnyx’ future.”
Eutechnyx is headquartered in Gateshead, England, with studios in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Hong Kong and the Chinese city of Chengdu.
