Grover Gaming, a creator of gaming software, content, and systems, has announced plans to create a new gaming development studio in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Six different game development teams will make up the group’s new game studio, each of which will feature 3D artists, game developers/programmers, quality assurance professionals, and quality testers.
A studio general manager, art director, director of game design, and director of game production will also be part of the leadership team.
Hiring quality people
Garrett Blackwelder, president of Grover Gaming said: “Even though we have added over 100 new employees in the past eighteen months, we are still making every effort to hire quality people every day.
“Fortunately, the pandemic did not slow down our hiring last year, and we firmly believe that having a game studio in Wilmington will enable us to expand our development team at a faster pace.”
Grover Gaming is currently licenced in Ohio, New Hampshire, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Washington, Ontario, Canada, and the Commonwealth of Virginia to develop software, game content, and gaming systems for lotteries and charitable gaming jurisdictions.
Kevin Morse, director of market development said: “This expansion really makes sense for us. Wilmington is growing as fast as we are, and we know that having an independent game studio there will allow us to continue to attract top-notch talent.
“We have every confidence that Wilmington and New Hanover County will continue the great job they have been doing.”
