Granblue fantasy juggernaut Cygames opens US, EU arms ahead of big game release



Cygames, the wildly successful Japanese company behind the runaway mobile hit Granblue Fantasy and its various spinoffs, is expanding. It has been clear for some time now that Cygames wants to become a more globally recognized outfit, and to help realize its ambitions outside of Japan, it has now established Cygames America and Cygames Europe.

These new offices were opened to publish and market its games in the West. The American arm will be based in Los Angeles, while the European joint will operate out of London, UK.

Of course, it all makes a lot of sense when you consider the timeline. Granblue Fantasy: Relink, the cool-looking PS5 and PS4 action RPG that’s been in development for years, is still set for a 2023 release. Granblue Fantasy vs: The Rising is also on track for this year. Both titles are targeting a simultaneous worldwide launch.

In short, this is an important step for Cygames, and perhaps an inevitable one, given the company’s immense success in Asian territories. It’s also possible that this announcement preempts news regarding the aforementioned Granblue Fantasy titles, so keep your eyes peeled.
