Konami’s European HQ moving to UK

Posted By | On 06th, Aug. 2012

Starting at the beginning of the Konami’s next financial year in April 2013, the company will be merging its European operations to form a new EU HQ in the UK.

In what represents a significant restructuring for Konami, leaving its base in Germany, this move will see Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH merge with Konami Digital Entertainment B.V.

This move is part of Konami’s aim “to ensure each territory can provide a more localised service”. Recently Konami also announced the opening of a dedicated Pro Evolution Soccer studio in the UK.

Regional offices in France, Germany and Spain will retain their roles and whilst the HQ will no longer be German-based, Konami insist that it will still have a large presence in the country.

Konami’s Digital Entertainment GmbH President Shinji Hirano said, “These are changes to match a very exciting and challenging time for video game publishers.We want to show our commitment to the consumers in each territory by establishing close relationships that deliver what they particularly want and need, and to create rapport between us that benefits both sides.”
