Following a successful application for the South Australian Landing Pad Program, the company will open a new games studio in Adelaide by Christmas 2022.
The South Australian Landing Pad attracts companies to South Australia that will stimulate and grow the economy, create jobs and grow new industries.
The company is in the process of developing training programs with local providers to offer graduates on-the-job experience as well as offering experienced staff the opportunity to upskill.
Tom Crago, Director, Keywords Studios Australia, said; “As a proud South Australian, I’m delighted to be part of a game development studio in Adelaide once again. The talent in South Australia is as good as anywhere in the world, and we look forward to growth and success from day one.”
Keywords Studios is already recruiting for roles to start in 2022 across engineering, art, technical art, QA and production in South Australia.
