EveryMatrix Dives Into Game Development Vertical with Spearhead Studios

Provider of content and solutions for the iGaming industry EveryMatrix has announced plans to tap into the game development vertical with the recent launch of Spearhead Studios.

Based in Marbella, Spain, Spearhead Studios is a new game studio that was formed from the team that comprised GiG Games, the game development division of Gaming Innovation Group. The recently established studio is led by Mathias Larsson, the former Managing Director of GiG Games.

GiG announced this past September that it had taken the strategic decision to no longer invest in its GiG Games studio in a bid to reduce OPEX and concentrate on key strategic areas. The game development studio was originally launched in 2017 and released its first in-house developed game in October 2018.

Following GiG’s decision to halt investment into its development division, EveryMatrix acquired the team behind it to expand its business to a new vertical.

The company said today that Spearhead Studios’ in-house capabilities include game concept design, JavaScript development of content, digital artist production, animation, UI/X design, audio production, gameplay testing/QA, certification, and localization. The studio’s team previously crafted the Book of Souls online slot, which accumulated more than 20 million game rounds during its first ten months after release.

Plans for the Future

EveryMatrix said today that it has already set out plans for its new studio’s next stage of development. These include completion of multiple online slots projects and releasing table games such as roulette and blackjack.

Of the launch of Spearhead Studios, EveryMatrix CEO and Co-founder Ebbe Groes said that entering the game development vertical “was something which we wanted to do for some time now.” Mr. Groes added that “having a creative gaming studio led by a brilliant executive such as Mathias Larsson sets EveryMatrix apart in this competitive industry.”

Mr. Larsson brings in more than a decade of experience in the gambling industry. He is the founder of supplier of digitally distributed casino systems and games XIN Gaming. He has also worked for established industry players such as Ezugi and HoGaming.

  • PG SOFT to Add Casino Games Portfolio to EveryMatrix’s CasinoEngine

Of his new role as the Managing Director of Spearhead Studios, Mr. Larsson said that he is “very excited to play a part in the launch of Spearhead Studios and continue the work we’ve already started.” He added that their “very talented and highly skilled team” will prove successful in the years to come and that being part of EveryMatrix will certainly strengthen their offering and help their content reach a bigger audience.

EveryMatrix’s CEO noted that Spearhead Studios’ activity will remain highly independent and that the game developer will win “market share on its own merits while staying true to our principles of full transparency and maximum coverage in CasinoEngine!”

Owned by EveryMatrix, CasinoEngine is one of the industry’s largest casino games content aggregators in the industry. Mr. Groes said today that the “tremendous success” of the platform served as the background for the acquisition of the former GiG Games team as CasinoEngine has strong synergies to Spearhead Studios.
