FunPlus, the leading mobile game developer and publisher behind free games, has recently announced its plans for projects such as State of Survival, King of Avalon, and Guns of Glory. The company has taken action to expand its publishing office in Barcelona, Spain, and to bring in new talent. These growth goals aim to further strengthen the company’s presence in Europe, in addition to the work of its global headquarters in Switzerland.
Located in the center of the city, the FunPlus Barcelona office opened in late 2019 and has been gradually expanding its team and scope over the past two years. The office will continue to leverage the talented pool of tech and gaming professionals located in the Barcelona region to double its already 15-strong team by the end of 2021. The launched talent hunt covers areas such as growth marketing, community management and creative services.
The mentioned team is led by Enric Cabestany, managing director of the Barcelona office. Enric is an experienced technology and digital media leader with over 15 years of management and publishing experience. Joining FunPlus in September 2019 to manage all western market operations, Enric is also responsible for establishing the publishing organization for the FunPlus group in Barcelona.
Enric Cabestany said in a statement on the subject:
“Barcelona is a world-renowned center of excellence for talent in the mobile and video game space, and we are excited to position FunPlus at the heart of the action. As the team grows here we will have even more opportunities to expand the reach and impact of our games and further engage our communities.”
FunPlus CBO (Chief Business Officer) Chris Petrovic added:
“FunPlus has seen remarkable team growth over the past year, particularly in leadership roles, and by focusing our search for a number of key publishing roles in Barcelona we’re confident that we will be welcoming some of the best talent on the market. Over the past year our games have seen incredible success hitting major milestones, and we’re ramping up to make sure those games, and others, continue to perform strongly in the coming years.”
State of Survival, the free-to-play strategy game available on iOS and Android in 2021, excitedly celebrated its success exceeding 100 million downloads in its first two years. King of Avalon celebrated its fourth and Guns of Glory fifth anniversary with great milestones.
