Cygames Expanding

Cygames, the hugely successful Japanese company behind runaway mobile hit Granblue Fantasy and its various spinoffs, is expanding. It's been clear for a while now that Cygames wants to become a more globally recognised outfit, and to help it realise its ambitions outside of Japan, it's now established Cygames America and Cygames Europe.

These new offices have been opened in order to publish and market its games in the West. The American arm will be based in Los Angeles, while the European addition will operate out of London, UK.

Of course, this all makes a lot of sense when you consider the timeline. Granblue Fantasy: Relink, the fantastic looking PS5 and PS4 action RPG that's been in development for years, is still set to release in 2023. Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising is also on track for this year. Both titles are targeting a simultaneous worldwide launch.

In short, this is a significant step for Cygames, and perhaps an inevitable one, given the company's immense success in Asian territories. It's also likely that this announcement precludes incoming news regarding the aforementioned Granblue Fantasy titles, so keep your eyes peeled.
