EA Maxis Opens New Mobile Studio in Finland

The Maxis Label of EA announced today that they’ve opened a new studio in Helsinki, Finland and will begin hiring new positions there. The studio will be focused on delivering new games for The Sims franchise on mobile and potentially expanding with other opportunities. Right now, we’re looking for a wide variety of development and support roles.

“Mobile is a strategic focus for the company and to Maxis as a label. We feel that the talent base in Finland will be a strong complement to our existing mobile expertise based around the world,” said Lucy Bradshaw, General Manager of Maxis. “The Sims franchise continues to find strong audiences across all platforms and the team we are building in Helsinki will be tasked to maintain our tradition of being some of the most creative game developers on any platform. Welcome to the team.”

Maxis Helsinki will report into Jami Laes, Vice President of Global Studios for Playfish, joining EA’s Maxis Label under Bradshaw.

    Brilliant! Open an office in Tampere or Pirkkala too. You made very good decision, because there's very many employers (and the good ones) who are fired from Nokia.

    Just had preview of Tampere area gaming industry by ManseGames association in Nokia Bridge. There is 38 different companies and couple of big labels have already opened game studio here. http://mansegames.fi/game_industry_tre Remember, that Iron Sky was a Tampere production. They outsourced heavily, thus there is also vast 3D knowledge base here. Welcome here, too.
