Genshin Impact makers HoYoverse open headquarters office in Singapore
HoYoverse, the developer and publisher of games like Honkai Impact 3rd, Genshin Impact and Tears of Themis, has officially opened its headquarters office in Singapore.
The 28,000 sq ft space, featuring the brand's signature blue and white colour scheme, will house a dedicated team of professionals to "provide high-quality entertainment services worldwide", HoYoverse said in the announcement on Monday (18 July).
In addition to the opening of the office, HoYoverse also plans to add "hundreds of jobs" by the end of 2022.
"Our team in Singapore will play a crucial role in broadening our global development and service network," said Forrest Liu, co-founder of HoYoverse.
"We're eager for more creative minds from diverse backgrounds to join us in building the future," Liu said in his statement.
Apart from the Singapore office, HoYoverse has offices in Montreal, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Seoul.
HoYoverse also said that it is "embracing" a flexible working model, aimed at cultivating a "global mindset" and creating "an inspiring working environment".
As part of this, the company would encourage employees based in Singapore and North America to "work wherever they feel the most creative and productive", and said it would offer welfare and benefit packages as part of ensuring an "inclusive and safe work environment".
Formerly branded under miHoYo, HoYoverse also has other entertainment-related content such as the virtual character Lumi and the N0va Desktop App, as well as anime, manga, light novels and music.
Genshin Impact, launched in 2020, quickly became HoYoverse's most prominent title. A role-playing game with gacha mechanics, the game tells the story of a Traveler exploring the world of Tevyat, on a quest to find his (or her) missing sibling.
The game itself regularly tops the earnings charts for games, and also has an active community that heavily discusses both the gameplay and mechanics as well as ever-growing roster of characters.
