Smilegate is starting a new studio that will focus entirely on AAA games. Their first project is an open-world title for consoles. The new studio is located in Barcelona, Spain, and is currently looking to expand its current workforce, which is over 20 members. It is popularly known for its first-person shooter, Crossfire, and is currently working on Xbox One release version. 

“As open-world games will continue to dominate the video game industry, we are well-positioned to build upon our team’s experience with talent from around the world, and are ready to create a AAA experience from our new studio in Barcelona,” said Yongil Kim, the CEO of Smilegate Barcelona, Smilegate. “Barcelona’s vibrant and lively youth culture set to the backdrop of gorgeous old world history is a powerful and inspiring combination. The city welcomes creativity and supports technology industries such as ours with a strong infrastructure and high quality of life.”

According to the press release, Barcelona was chosen for the new studio citing how important the city has become to Europe in terms of technological advancement. 

With the announcement comes a number of new job openings that are now available to apply on their official website. Additional details not yet given as to what this open-world game may be. 

We might not hear about this current project anytime soon, which leaves us to assume that it will most likely release during the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X life cycles. 

We will update you about this whenever there is any development.
