Kabam’s big boom in Vancouver’s gaming sector - Technology

KAB

Kabam CEO Tim Fields: we know that we’re going to be continuing to grow and we want to do that in Vancouver | Submitted. When Tim Fields first arrived at Kabam Inc.’s Vancouver headquarters five years ago, the gaming studio seemed as compact as the mobile devices its games are featured on. The mobile gaming developer has more breathing room now since expanding into new offices and hiring another 200 workers (even more employees are based at offices in San Francisco and Austin). But even the new facilities on Alberni and Georgia streets aren’t enough for the company that broke onto the scene with the Kingdoms of Camelot mobile game. Meanwhile, last year’s departure of two Japanese gaming companies, Bandai Namco Studios Vancouver Inc. and Capcom Game Studio Vancouver Inc., has raised concerns over investment leaving the city, according to Bailey. Another reason for the rebrand, according to Fields, is to make Kabam as attractive as possible to potential new hires. While the city’s beauty is a pull for talent, Vancouver’s high cost of living has made it more difficult for young workers to make a go of it, he said. And in recent months officials from the City of Calgary have been visiting Vancouver, trying to recruit talent to work in Alberta’s fledgling tech industry.
