Riot Games Southeast Asia’s Publishing Team moves into JustCo at The Centrepoint
A fast paced, challenging yet exciting work environment is definitely no stranger to Riot Games, who is well-known for developing and publishing popular video games such as League of Legends. Day in day out, Riot continues to build on its philosophy of being a player-focused company by bringing excellent gaming experiences to its fans, launching new exciting titles, engaging players through esports tournaments, community activities and more.
2020 has been a big year for Riot, with new game releases such as digital collectible card game Legends of Runeterra, tactical 5v5 shooter title VALORANT and most recently, the Regional Open Beta of League of Legends: Wild Rift – a mobile MOBA that’s now available in Singapore on Android and iOS.
In November 2019, the Riot Games Southeast Asia Publishing team started out with an office space in Singapore at JustCo at 5One Central. In less than a year, the team very quickly outgrew their space and needed a larger office – that was when they decided to move into JustCo’s first smart office at The Centrepoint. As Riot takes on an aggressive growth trajectory in Southeast Asia (SEA), the leader in the video games and esports industry recognises the importance of a workspace solution that offers maximum flexibility.
”We are expanding our presence in Southeast Asia rapidly, and JustCo’s one-stop workspace solution has provided us with great convenience and flexibility to house our growing team while we work on numerous new game launches. Leaving the entire fit-out and workspace configuration in the good hands of JustCo’s professional team allows us to channel our resources to better focus on our publishing operations, ” says Kaialani Ng, Office Manager of Riot Games Southeast Asia.
Riot was able to leverage the flexibility of right-sizing their teams according to their business growth as and when needed, allowing them to adapt quickly to the dynamic economic environment with minimal disruption to operations. Cost savings and mitigating real estate risks are just some of the many benefits of choosing a shared workspace like JustCo.
With its new office at JustCo at The Centrepoint, Riot is enjoying the new smart workspace technology features such as facial recognition turnstiles, card-free access via the JustCo App and an in-house café, Ratio, which uses a coffee-making robotic arm. Riot’s staff are also able to access and participate in regular professional or lifestyle events, such as webinars, workshops or yoga classes – to seek new connections, network and explore collaboration opportunities with other like–minded businesses and individuals.
