Officials from European publisher Deep Silver, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Koch Media, have announced that the company is to open its first offices in the U.S. The new Los Angeles based office will serve as the headquarters for U.S. sales and marketing and North American developer relations. Deep Silver has published around sixty games in Europe since 2003, primarily PC based titles such as graphic adventure Secret Files: Tunguska and strategy series Anno 1701. The company has also seen recent success with portable titles CrossworDS and Horse Life DS. Forthcoming titles include Namco Bandai co-production Warhammer: Battle March and first person shoot ‘em-up S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky. The company also recently founded its first development studio in Vienna, Austria. "The opening of our United States office represents an important milestone in the development of Koch Media," said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media. "In the last five years, Deep Silver was able to successfully position itself as a quality brand, and now enters the North American market with its own branch office. With a presence in the USA, we can market our own products more efficiently, all over the world." "Opening an office in America means establishing Deep Silver in the world's largest market for games," said Cathy Tische, vice president of sales and marketing at Deep Silver. "The geographical location right in the center of the American games industry is ideal for future growth, and for building a network of business partners."
