Building Next-gen Games in the Pearl of the Orient
Serving as a gateway to China since the 19th century, Shanghai is an exciting cosmopolitan city today. Tall skyscrapers are commonly found alongside old Chinese streets here, proving that it has kept up with the times while respecting tradition.
The city’s tireless pursuit of progress is reflected in both the standard of living and the amenities supporting that lifestyle. Indeed, Shanghai has become a hotbed for China’s rapidly-expanding games industry, with some of its biggest players establishing bases of operations in the city.
Shanghai remains a highly desirable option for local and foreign talent, with abundant housing options and plentiful access to schools for their children. The city itself is supported by an extensive metro network (helpfully detailed in both Chinese and English) that makes it a breeze to get around town or to the airport.
Weather-wise, Shanghai offers a unique experience for every season, from pleasant springtime and humid summers, to cool autumns and chilly winters.
