Mythical Games opens new offices in S.Korea and Stockholm in global expansion

Mythical Games has been undergoing some impressive global expansion. In an announcement by the team this week, Mythical has announced new offices set up in Asia-Pacific and Europe. Specifically, new offices have been established in South Korea and Stockholm, including a second one that is set up in the UK.

The new openings are all part of the company’s rapid global expansion, and aim to bring blockchain gaming, and the metaverse, to users across the world. To make this vision a reality, the new offices are doubled up with some new appointments. Mike Kang has been named as the vice president of business development for the APAC region, while Jikhan Jung will be the vice president of production.

Meanwhile, the EA veteran Adam Schaub has been appointed as head of Mythical Europe and Studio General Manager. Schaub’s job is made exciting and easier thanks to Mythicals acquiring of technology and staff from the Brighton-based studio – Shortround Games.

“We’re thrilled to bring the talented Shortround team under the Mythical umbrella, as well as having Adam, Andrew, Mike and Jikhan on board for this next step in our global expansion as we build out our team and scale operations to bring new games to our platform,” said John Linden, co-founder and CEO, Mythical Games. “The play-and-earn community is rapidly growing, and we as a company are growing alongside it, to better meet the needs of consumers who want to interact and transact in immersive 3D game worlds. Our new studios in Seoul and Stockholm increase our publishing and platform capabilities, and alongside the team from Shortround, and Polystream, rounding out our UK presence, these moves further our position as a leader in bringing decentralized gaming to a mass-market audience across the globe.”

Following a successful Series C fundraising, led by Andreessen Horowitz, Mythical Games has grown exponentially as developer of Play-to-Earn gaming concepts and unique NFTs. Valued at $1.25 billion, Mythical has dedicated its time, both to growth, and the development of its ecosystem, bridging the gap between users and the metaverse.

With these offices being part of Mythical’s expansion, since raising more funds early this year and in 2021, the team is also continuing to staff up. So, anyone interested in learning more about the company’s opportunities, check out its career page here.
