Studios from other countries and those who took advantage of the relocation program have maintained a partnership with Azur Games.

As an international publisher, we try to build an effective way to interact with partners, and help developers relocate to different countries. Several teams have already taken advantage of the program, and our relationships with them continue to strive,

In May 2022, we launched a relocation program for game development studios and independent developers. The program is valid for developers on all platforms — mobile, consoles, or PC.

Since 2021, as part of our investment program, we have acquired shares in the French studio Pinpin Team, Israeli KobGames, and also consolidated the development team of the famous Mushroom Wars game series.
