SGA member Playstudios is now listed on NASDAQ!

After Sozap, another SGA member – Playstudios – got listed on NASDAQ!

Playstudios was founded in 2011 and consists of four groups: Playstudios US (Las Vegas, Burlingame, Austin), Playstudios Asia (Hong Kong, Hanoi), Playstudios Israel (Tel Aviv) and since recently, our newest members, Playstudios Europe (Belgrade).

The general advisor to the team in Europe is Nikola Mitić, former CEO of COFA Games, who shared some reflections with us regarding this great news: “The IPO is a big step for us and will enable us to grow even faster, both through the hiring of new talent and the acquisition of other studies. Going out of the social casino genre into casual and RPG are some of the next steps.

By the way, Playstudios is the first mobile game studio to go public with a unique offer of prizes that can be used in the “real world”. Some of the investors in Playstudios are Activision Blizzard, MGM Resorts, BlackRock and others, and the estimated value is $ 1.1 billion.”

“As PLAYSTUDIOS enters this exciting new chapter in our history, we are uniquely positioned to accelerate our growth within the robust games market,” said CEO Andrew Pascal on this occasion.

In addition to significant acquisitions and arrivals of large global gaming companies in Serbia, such things further accelerate the growth of the domestic ecosystem and increase the visibility of our games and talent on the global market: “All these are very good things for the local industry and attract the attention of the global business community and investors. If we talk about further opportunities for development within the Serbian gaming ecosystem, there are already several strong startups among SGA members that have expanded in the past two years, boosted their teams and announced new games. “- added Kristina Janković, SGA Executive Manager.

The Playstudios team in Serbia consists of over 80 professionals who are in charge of developing the game Pop! Slots, and they are looking for new colleagues for the following positions:
