Just recently, we covered an article where a game developed by a Malaysian game studio is getting very positive reviews. Now we have another new game development studio popping up in Malaysia. This shows that Malaysians have the skills and talents to help bring some of the biggest triple-A games to life.
Founded in 2004, Virtuos is a video game development company headquartered in Singapore with studios across Asia, Europe, and North America, specialises in game development and art production for AAA consoles, PC, and mobile titles.
Today, the company announced the official launch of its studio in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Virtuos Kuala Lumpur delivers full game development, engineering, and art production services to some of the world’s biggest game developers and publishers.
It is part of Virtuos’ global network of studios, which has contributed to iconic games including Assassin’s Creed, Call of Duty, Demon’s Souls, Final Fantasy, Horizon Forbidden West, and Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond for Meta Quest 2.
Virtuos KL will be helmed by Mufizal Mokhtar as General Manager. The studio was founded by a team that includes veteran AAA game developers with over 20 years of experience each. The team comprises Boon Yan Toh as Studio Operations Director, Ian Ng Siong Yoong as Studio Production Director, Noorazhar Mohd Noor as Senior Lead Artist, and Johaness Reuben as Technical Art Director. Since the studio’s soft launch in early 2021, its team has grown to 90 employees.
I am pleased to return home to build Virtuos Kuala Lumpur alongside some of my closest friends and pioneers in the industry.
We are excited to play an active part in Malaysia’s game development industry and the growth of its digital ecosystem. Thanks to the support of the Malaysian Government and our global Virtuos network, we look forward to welcoming the best talent to our multicultural team and making games better, together.Virtuos KL, General Manager, Mufizal Mokhtar
