Square Enix Opens New Mobile Development Studio

Today, Square Enix has announced the opening of a new studio in London devoted to mobile gaming and already working on The Last Airbender and Tomb Raider games!

This morning brings news of a new London based studio for Square Enix, which will focus specifically on mobile video games. On top of working on the already announced Tomb Raider Reloaded, they’re also working on a game based on Avatar: The Last Airbender!

“At Square Enix London Mobile, our goal is to move the world through play and in order to do this, we need to grow our team with even more unique voices, varieties of perspectives and creative energy,” said Ed Perkins, Studio Head at Square Enix London Mobile “We have great games in development, access to Square Enix-owned IP and relationships with the world’s top entertainment companies, but our people will be the competitive advantage that fuels our success now and in the future.”

As the group seeks to add new internal talent, the as-yet-untitled Avatar: The Last Airbender mobile game is in development with Vancouver-based studio Navigator Games.

“It has been an incredible privilege to partner with Square Enix London Mobile on the creation of a game with such an iconic IP,” said Will Moore, CEO at Navigator Games. “The Avatar: The Last Airbender universe has so many layers and complex storylines to explore and we look forward to fully unveiling it and sharing it with all the incredibly passionate and loyal Avatar fans in the future.”

 

Square Enix London Mobile is also at work on the previously announced Tomb Raider Reloaded, a nostalgic, action-arcade style adventure designed specifically for mobile. Developed in partnership with Crystal Dynamics, Tomb Raider Reloaded will feature classic elements from the original Tomb Raider trilogy, as players step into the shoes of the franchise’s iconic hero, Lara Croft, to solve puzzles, escape treacherous traps and collect coveted relics from secret tombs across the globe. Tomb Raider Reloaded will launch on the Apple App Store and Google Play in 2022.
