“It’s an amazing time for People Can Fly,” said Sebastian Wojciechowski, CEO at People Can Fly. “With the opening of our New York studio, we will surpass 200 staff, which will help us accelerate the development of our AAA project with Square Enix. At the same time, PCF now has a strategic foothold in one of the greatest cities in the world by which to attract world-class talent. David and Roland have a fantastic track record in building and managing high-quality teams. I look forward to working with them alongside our existing studios in the UK and Poland.”
