British developer Climax Studios has opened a new studio in Auckland, New Zealand.
Climax is probably best known for 2007’s Silent Hill: Origins and 2008’s Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. Its Portsmouth, England studio is currently working on Assassin's Creed Chronicles for Ubisoft.
It is working on augmented reality projects on behalf of a large US corporation, and hopes to expand and take on more AR and VR projects.
"It was a great opportunity to hire a group of engineers, who were both experienced, talented and are already used to working as a team,” said Climax CEO Simon Gardner.
“In addition I have known and worked with Andy for most of my life and he has worked for Climax as a contractor on numerous occasions in the past. The opportunity was just too good to miss.”
