Game Insight Moves HQ From Moscow To Lithuania


As one of the largest developers and publishers of mobile games out there, Game Insight always had one unique thing going for it: it was based in Russia. As of today though, that’s no longer the case.

Game Insight announced today that its new headquarters will move from Moscow to Vilnius, Lithuania. The new home base will be responsible for all international operations, game development and marketing moving forward.

The move to Europe reflects what the company has learned about its players. Specifically, more than 26 percent of Game Insight’s global audience is from Europe, and those players are providing more than 28 percent of the company’s total revenue.

Though founder and CEO Alisa Chumachenko is Russian, she sounds like she’s very much in favor of the move.

“The moving of Game Insight office to the EU country is intended to consolidate Game Insight positions as a global company as well as to strengthen its presence in Europe, one of the key markets,” Chumachenko said in a press release. “It’s a very important step for us, and I will personally lead the development of the headquarters in Vilnius.”

Lithuania also seems pretty excited to have Game Insight set up shop within its borders.

“We are pleased that one of the leading mobile game developers in the world chose Vilnius as the location for its new headquarters,” Arvydas Arnasius, managing director at Invest Lithuania, said via press release. “It only proves Lithuania’s attractiveness to game developers with its availability of talented developers; state-of-art ICT infrastructure; business-friendly environment as well as favorable location between Eastern and Western markets. We are confident that it will make a positive impact on the high technology business development in Lithuania as well as drawing attention to Lithuania as a rising game development hotspot.”

Apparently the move is effective today. Goodbye Moscow, hello Vilnius.
