VNGGames, the gaming publishing unit of Vietnamese tech giant VNG Corporation, has continued its international expansion with its new offices in Taipei with thirty-five employees.

VNG Games said in a statement on Friday that Taipei is the next city for VNGGames to establish a publishing presence after Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Shanghai, and Beijing.

Besides Taipei, VNGGames has plans to continue its expansion into additional markets, such as Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.

So far, the company has successfully published 41 games across the international markets.

VNGGames has also invested in several studio games, aiming to bring its own games internationally.

Prior to the official grand opening on May 19, VNGGames already had a small team in the city exploring publishing opportunities and have published several games since June 2021.

According to the statement, Taipei is an attractive city for game publishers due to its depth of talent, strong infrastructure, and large gamer community.

Being a newer entrant, VNGGames said it is entering a highly competitive market but this is both a challenge and an opportunity as it will be leveraging broad regional resources to establish itself as a game publisher in Taipei.

“Taipei is important for our strategy to go global as it is a key market for role-playing games (RPG), which has been a core part of VNGGames’s DNA since founding,” said Kelly Wong, Vice President of Game Entertainment.

With the new office, she said the firm has obviously made a strong statement that it is committed to both the market and the team that it has assembled.

Wong also noted that the talent pool in Taipei is one of the reasons leading to the establishment of the Taipei office.

“The professionalism and depth of knowledge of games has helped VNGGames to grow its business not only in Taipei, but also across different countries in Asia,” she added.

VNGGames first entered the market with the launch of Gunny Origin in 2022, which ranked number 2 in the highest-grossing iOS games in Taipei.

The success had laid the groundwork for VNGGames to scale up its game-publishing business in the region and accelerated its plans to build a permanent presence in Taipei.

“For the long-term goal, we aim to be the top-tier game publisher in the Taipei market,” said Chu Cheng Yuan, Head of the VNGGames, Taipei Studio.

VNGGames is a game publisher headquartered in Vietnam. The firm aims to bring high-quality, entertaining content to its gamers across the world.

VNGGames invests and collaborates with developers across the world and brings localized content for gamers in Southeast Asia and has plans to expand its publishing capabilities internationally.
