Kixeye expands into Canada with new studio

Mid-core social game developer Kixeye today revealed its opening a brand new studio in Victoria, British Columbia. This is the third office for the company, following this summer’s resurrection of 3 Blokes Studios in Brisbane, Australia.

The new office for Kixeye Canada is going to be run by its newly-appointed General Manager Clayton Stark, who is actively working to build up the company’s staff. Previewously, Stark was the CTO and VP of Engineering at Flock, which was acquired by Zynga in 2010. Stark served as Zynga’s Director of Development.

British Columbia turning into a hotbed of social and mobile game development, with KANO/APPS in Victoria itself and good-sized studios like Slant Six Games and East Side Games already present in Vancouver.

Stay tuned for our upcoming interview with Stark in the next few days, when we talk with him about Kixeye’s newest expansion, the company’s upcoming plans and how his Canadian tan is coming along.
