Kuju America, led by Eidos veteran John Kavanagh, is the newest addition to Kuju’s existing 5 game development studios and the first to be located outside of the UK. It's first project already in development, Kuju America will initially focus on the rapidly growing casual games sector.

Jonathan Newth, Corporate Development Officer of Kuju Entertainment, commented “This is an exciting and significant step for the Kuju group of studios. The US, and San Francisco in particular, is a natural choice for our first non-UK studio. It’s a hotbed of development talent, home to many leading publishers and some of the leading US games press. We’re delighted to have John on board, with his wealth of experience and contacts, to maximize the potential of the business in the area.”

Kuju America has already begun work on its first title.

John Kavanagh, Studio Head for Kuju America, added “It’s great to be working with Kuju to start this new enterprise. I’ve known Kuju and the management team for many years and I really approve of their model of multiple autonomous studios. I’m looking forward to making Kuju America the next successful Kuju studio.”
