Farming Simulator is undoubtedly one of the largest franchises in the whole simulator genre. GIANTS Software, the development studio, has been releasing new entries in the series for 10 years now, but the studio itself has actually been around since 2004.

A press release [via GamesPress] recently came out detailing GIANTS’ plans to move its two existing studios to bigger office spaces, in addition to opening a new studio in Brno, Czech Republic. GIANTS also plans on acquiring new developers for their teams.
It will be exciting to see what future projects this studio has in store! For now, we do know of its latest one: Farming Simulator 19. It’s set to release in late 2018 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Check out the press release for yourself:
Farming Simulator developer GIANTS Software has announced plans for further expansion by moving to bigger office spaces for their two existing studios and opening a new studio in Brno, Czech Republic.
Driven by the success of the Farming Simulator series, the company is focused on acquiring more talent to develop future games of the series and is now making space for them. The soon larger team of creative minds and industry veterans will be hosted in an expanded office in Erlangen, Germany towards the end of 2018 while the Swiss headquarter in Zurich will move to an exciting and larger office already in May.
Additionally, GIANTS Software is pleased to reveal the opening of a brand new studio, based in Czechia’s second biggest city, Brno. The studio will be led by Lukas Kure who spent many years on the highly successful Mafia and Settlers franchises at 2K Czech and Ubisoft Blue Byte. In pursuit of new creative avenues, Lukas joined GIANTS Software to help creating their newest studio. Since then, Lukas has been focused on bringing together a talented and passionate crew to develop and refine the famous Farming Simulator franchise.
“The technological heart of Czechia is home to many game companies and saw the creation of games like the Mafia series or Hidden and Dangerous. Brno is also a beautiful city, whose unique mix of historical buildings and large parks invites you to relax and recuperate. The new Brno office gives us the opportunity to tap into the rich regional talent pool as well as offer our future colleagues another exciting place to live.”, said Yann Le Tensorer, COO of GIANTS Software
GIANTS Software’s expansion signifies a new beginning for a talented and invigorated group ready to tackle exciting challenges ahead. More announcements and job opportunities will be made public in the coming weeks and months. In the meantime, the current openings can be found on the official company website.
