4A Games is moving to Malta

4A Games, celebrated developer of Metro 2033 series, just announced its new office on Malta.

Well, I wrote about it before, so there are no surprises here. Current crisis in Ukraine isn’t helping games development much. Big publishers are simply afraid to sign projects from Ukrainian and Russian teams.

BTW, I’ve met with Andrew Prokhorov two weeks ago and their new projects look absolutely amazing.

    New projects, plural? So it is not just Stalker in Space?

      Yup :)

    But they didn’t wrote that they are moving.

      “Key members of the Kiev office will relocate to Malta”

      • Пётр Поросятов

        But it’s “key members”, not the “whole 4a”. That’s different logical elements.

          Well, don’t trust press-releases, trust me :)

          They’ll eventually relocate whole dev team, leaving Kiev office to serve as insourcing team.

            Isn’t it under NDA or something?

            No, as far as I know
