Virtuos Academy will be "the first internationally owned and managed game training center to be officially licensed by the Shanghai government," according to Virtuos Ltd. "Virtuos Academy is founded on the framework of how to deliver real games, with intense training programs based on the real-life game development training scenarios, workflows and technologies," said Virtuos Academy Headmaster Richard Xu. "Students will be trained on the same techniques and the same types of high-end equipment that Virtuos uses to deliver services for its clients – clients including 15 of the top 20 game companies in the world." The Academy supplements Virtuos' existing development centers in Shanghai and Chengdu, and will offer its services to qualified students seeking a career in the games industry. “Virtuos Academy will be the most selective game development school in China, admitting only the talents with the highest potential for success," said Virtuos CEO Gilles Langourieux. "Virtuos Academy will provide these highly qualified personnel not only to the Chinese videogame industry to sustain its formidable growth and productivity, but also to the digital entertainment industry overseas."
