Making AAA Games in China’s Thriving Games Hub


When one thinks about Chinese culture, a few images pop into mind: Cuddly giant pandas, tongue-tingling Sichuan cuisine and remnants of the Three Kingdoms era. But did you know that it hosts a thriving game development industry, too?

While rich in heritage, Chengdu is also a modern city and the base of operations for many high-tech industries. Many game companies both local and international have also taken root here, actively contributing to R&D and game development for platforms ranging from consoles, to PC and mobile.

In addition to Chengdu’s historical significance, low cost of living and relevance to the tech industries, the distinctively Chinese way of life in the city also means that any visitors and expats coming over here will be treated to a uniquely new experience. This is perfect for anyone with an adventurous spirit, as they would be fully immersed in a whole new culture while picking up a new language in the process. The Sichuanese residents, famed for their friendliness and hospitality, make for especially pleasant conversationalists.


About our studio

Virtuos Chengdu was the second studio ever to be founded by the Virtuos Group back in 2008.

As a full-stack game development studio, it’s capable of handling all aspects of the production pipeline, from the first brief to the final product, entirely in-house. To facilitate this, the studio is staffed by a multicultural team of experts ranging from art to engineering, constantly hard at work on the biggest titles on the horizon.

The studio has come a long way from its humble beginnings to becoming one of Chengdu’s game development powerhouses, due mainly to the fact that it was one of the first to pioneer AAA game development focusing on console titles in the region.

To this day, Virtuos Chengdu is still regarded as a great starting point for local young talents aspiring to work in the games industry, attracting fresh graduates hailing from the best art and engineering universities all across Sichuan province.


Our Studio Highlights

The sheer breadth of their capabilities and deep experience in developing AAA games has given Virtuos Chengdu the confidence to embark on multiple ambitious projects. In fact, some of the biggest gaming hits in recent years have featured their contributions in one way or another.

The pursuit of excellence among the staff ensure that any newcomers will be given every chance to contribute their best work while accelerating their professional growth at the same time.

With that said, it’s not all work and no play, either. Nestled snug within the trendy Jinjiang District, the city’s greatest shopping experiences like Taikoo Li and IFS are just a stone’s throw away from the studio, while the more artistically-inclined would appreciate the museums and galleries at nearby Tianfu Square. To top it all off, restaurants serving world-famous Sichuan cuisine can be found in every street corner.

Because of the studio’s location, the talents at Virtuos Chengdu also get to enjoy a unique benefit in the form of a universal concession card that allows for various discounts at select food and beverage chains, with more added to the list periodically.
