GREE To Open Office In Osaka [Social Games]


After opening one office after the other outside Japan last year, GREE is planning to open a social game development studio in Osaka later this month.

What’s interesting is that this office will be the first of its kind outside Tokyo: the company does employ hundreds of people in Hokkaido and Okinawa, but these employees are working to keep the platform safe (for example by filtering messages from adults to minors).

GREE also says that they plan to recruit programmers in other cities, too – which makes sense, given the engineering talent crunch Tokyo is seeing currently.

Outside Japan, GREE operates offices in a total of eight countries now.
