New York New York! Hide&Seek expands in USA
In case you haven’t heard yet, last week brought the news that games studio Hide&Seek, our friends behind The Building Is… and the recent Hide&Seek Weekender, are opening a new office in Soho, New York. The game studio already has commissions lined up but pssst…they will be revealed later in the autumn.
Margaret Robertson flew over to head the new States-side offices, and so is leaving her post as development director at Hide&Seek London. Her bedrock of experience means she’s well known in the international gaming community, having worked on games development for Sony, EA, Channel 4 TV in the UK, and regularly speaking at games industry conferences.
Replacing Margaret is Mark Sorrell, formerly Games Director at UK games and media agency Somethin’ Else. He’s a new hire for Hide&Seek and his time working on games at Quiz TV, Sky Games, and FremantleMedia’s Screenpop, with brands such as Countdown, Scrabble, Ben 10 and The Premier League, is no doubt making him feel right at home at Hide&Seek.
Alex Fleetwood, director and founder of Hide&Seek, says, “This is a very exciting time for Hide&Seek. We have always held the US game development community in high regard, and are thrilled to be able to work with US partners, clients and colleagues more closely. The launch of Hide&Seek USA in New York marks a new phase for Hide&Seek internationally, as we begin to reach audiences across the world.”
