In collaboration with the regional gaming group AD Gaming, MY.GAMES, a top international developer and publisher of video games with its headquarters in Amsterdam, has announced the launch of a new regional hub in Abu Dhabi. The MENA area is presently among the top-5 gaming marketplaces in the world, according to NewZoo, and this move represents MY.GAMES’ most recent entry into that market.
MY.GAMES’ decision to establish a regional hub in Abu Dhabi is part of the company’s “Think Global, Act Local” model
War Robots, Rush Royale, and Hustle Castle are the most downloaded games among players in the MENA region, where nearly 100 million gamers have already registered as MY.GAMES members. By locating in Abu Dhabi, MY.GAMES is able to integrate with the local gaming scene and learn about the most recent trends there.
The MY.GAMES team, which is based in Abu Dhabi, brings decades of experience in a variety of gaming environments and platforms, as well as initiatives and group projects like Game Drive.
The choice of MY.GAMES to locate a regional office in Abu Dhabi is a component of the business’s “Think Global, Act Local” philosophy. 90% of the company’s personnel operates globally, with access to regional hubs, as part of its distributed work strategy.
The local team at the YAS Creative Hub in Abu Dhabi will concentrate largely on game creation, research, localization, and publishing, while the investment arm of MY.GAMES, MGVC, will intensify its efforts to find, assist, and unlock the potential of emerging gaming companies in the area. During the following five years, the company plans to hire and educate local game developers, adding to the number of jobs created. Additionally, MY.GAMES intends to start internship programs with regional partners to aid the upcoming generation.
