Cygames Establishes America and Europe Branches

    Continuing a worldwide push for overseas markets.

    Granblue Fantasy publisher and developer Cygames announced it has established American and European branches to promote and market upcoming titles in the west. These branches are named Cygames America and Cygames Europe respectively. 

    Established in April 2023, the Cygames America branch is based out of Los Angeles, California with CEO Motohiro Okubo. Hiroaki Ochiai is leading the helm as managing director of Cygames Europe, which is based in London, England. The Cygames Europe branch was established in March 2023. According to Cygames, marketing and licensing are the main purposes of these two branches. 

    As previously stated, these new Cygames branches will directly promote upcoming releases in the west. The worldwide release of Shadowverse in June 2016 was a contributing factor toward Cygames’ continued push for marketing titles outside of Japan. North America and Europe make up half of the world’s overall gaming market, and Cygames will continue to market releases outside of Japan.
