Gran Turismo Developer Expands to Fukuoka

Polyphonay Digital to move part of its staff out of Tokyo.


Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital will be moving part of its development force from Tokyo down to Fukokua. NHK reports today that CEO Kazunori Yamauchi visited Fukuoka mayor Soichiro Takashima in Fukuoka City Hall to deliver the news that approximately 50 members of the company's 150 staff will be making the move.

According to NHK, Polyphony began considering the move following the March tsunami and earthquake disasters.

The NHK report did not offer further specifics on the move.

Fukuoka is no stranger to major developers, as the likes of Level-5 and CyberConnect2 are based there.
