Texas-based company Rooster Teeth will be building a closer link with their UK and European fans.
The company behind the machinima web-series Red vs Blue and anime RWBY are opening their very first office in England’s capital.
Eric Cherry, who has been with the company since 2008, will be running the new team. He will be responsible for building a presence in both British and international markets.
Matt Hullum, CEO and co-founder of Rooster Teeth, told Variety: “Building communities is a goal and we’ve done a good job in the UK but know we could do more.” He added: “The talent and community piece in the UK has been undeserved and we wanted to correct that.”
Very excited for our expansion plans in the UK. I should start working on my visa. https://t.co/irEAWKs1iJ
