Sony Interactive Entertainment To Open Offices in Adelaide

July 16, 2019

Written by Jamie Galea

In what’s been a burgeoning period for the state, the South Australian government has annouced that Sony Interactive Entertainment will be opening an office in Adelaide. The new office will establish 32 new engineering roles, with no indication whether this will bolster local infrastucture or the greater Playstation line of products.

What’s helped to attract Sony to South Australia has been the Economic and Business Growth fund created by Premier Steven Marshall’s Liberal Government, which will be providing $480,000 AUD to Sony to establish the office. ‚ÄúSouth Australia is building a culture of creativity and innovation that is helping to inspire new enterprises and encourage leading creative companies like Sony Interactive Entertainment to invest in our state” says Tim Whetstone, Acting Minster for for Trade, Tourism and Investment. Whetstone continues: “By building a culture of creativity and innovation, we are not only encouraging major companies to South Australia, we are giving young students who want to work in this field the ability to stay here in SA and not have to travel interstate for these types of exciting opportunities”.

While it’s certainly a boon for the local games industry, it’s the second major games related announcement to hit South Australia recently. An upcoming reboot of the Mortal Kombat film franchise will be filmed in South Australia and will be bringing a lot of work to the state, recently announce casting of its Sub-Zero. This news also follows legendary VFX house Industrial Light & Magic opening up offices in Sydney.
