FTS: It's morphin time as Eidos Shanghai become Gearbox Studio Shanghai


The company’s first expansion into Asia brings in local talent to work on award-winning games portfolio


FRISCO, Texas – November 15, 2022 – Eidos Shanghai is now Gearbox Studio Shanghai, according to news released today by Gearbox Entertainment. This will be Gearbox’s first expansion into Asia—an important market in the company’s long-term growth strategy. Gigi Ning, who previously led Eidos Shanghai, will continue leading the studio as General Manager and report into Gearbox Publishing San Francisco.


Gearbox Studio Shanghai brings years of local experience to the Gearbox family, with the team supporting numerous AAA franchises since their original inception in 2008. This experience, alongside a proven track record of hyper-localized marketing efforts, puts Gearbox Studio Shanghai in a strong position to provide immediate and meaningful support to multiple titles across the Gearbox portfolio.

The team at Gearbox Studio Shanghai will join in Gearbox’s mission to entertain the world. Like all Gearbox team members, the employees in the new Shanghai studio will experience a dedication to creating an anti-crunch culture and competitive benefits.
