Keywords Studios, an international technical services provider to the global video games industry employing 11,000 people, has now set firm plans to set up operations in Malta. Established in 1998, and now with over 70 facilities in 24 countries, Keywords Studios is strategically located in Asia, Australia, the Americas, and Europe. The first earmarked studios for Malta expansion will be USA-based Sperasoft followed by the UK-based Electric Square.

“Our vision to position Malta as home of gaming excellence across the multiple gaming verticals is bearing fruit. Our investment in education, a start-up incubator space, and an international drive to promote the Malta jurisdiction as a video game and esports hub spearheaded by the GamingMalta Foundation is resulting in blue-chip organisations such as Keywords not only taking notice but also making firm plans in Malta,” said Minister for the Economy, European Funds and Lands Silvio Schembri.

Ivan Filletti, CEO of the GamingMalta Foundation, added that, “We have been steadfast and committed to our strategic vision launched in 2019 in growing the video games and esports sector by also launching educational initiatives and ecosystem support. Today, we have a continued strong pipeline of both local and international companies using Malta as a stage for their global ambitions.”

Bertrand Bodson, CEO of Keywords Studios, commented; “We have been impressed with the Maltese government’s investment in the video gaming sector over the last four years and customer-centric approach spearheaded by the GamingMalta Foundation. We feel the island is a natural fit for our strategic vision and a welcoming home to our talented game development teams. We are looking forward to continuing support in building a sustainable video game ecosystem for the island.”
