Building Next-gen Games in China’s Trendsetting Metropolis


Serving as a gateway to China since the 19th century, Shanghai is an exciting cosmopolitan city today. 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 modern apartments and schools available. 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.


About our studio

The award-winning Virtuos Shanghai studio was founded in late 2004, the first of six game development studios located internationally and the former headquarters of the group before its relocation to Singapore in 2018.

Staffed by a multicultural group of talents, the studio specializes in providing full-stack game development and co-development services, including technical support for art and engineering. Virtuos Shanghai is also the base of operations for multiple Art teams working on the world’s top triple-A projects.

The studio itself is physically located in downtown Shanghai, just a stone’s throw away from the city center, and most of the important transportation junctions are within one hour circle.

Staff are spoiled for choice here in terms of dining options, with restaurants serving up international cuisines that will satisfy anyone’s taste buds. At the end of a busy work day, one can reward themselves with a short sightseeing trip to nearby Jing’an Temple, People’s Square, West Nanjing Road or the Bund.
