City Interactive Expands into North America and Latin America

Company plans to launch its best-selling PC game Art of Murder this summer

City Interactive announced today the appointments of Gabriel Del Castillo to the position of CEO Americas and Lisa Rivera as Vice President Sales North America as part of the company’s plans to expand into North and Latin American markets. The company will launch its first U.S. titles, the critically acclaimed PC adventure game Art of Murder: FBI Confidential and Code of Honor 2, a first-person shooter for the PC, later this summer.

“City Interactive is pleased to have such a great team in place to spearhead our expansion,” said Marek Tyminski, CEO and Founder, City Interactive. “Because Art of Murder is one of the best-selling adventure games in Europe and the best-selling game in the history of our company, it’s a natural product for our North American and Latin American launches.”

City Interactive Americas is headed by Gabriel Del Castillo, who has extensive experience working for IBM, Price Waterhouse, Andersen Consulting and others.

“City Interactive’s culture of adapting to each market segment and capitalizing on the economies of scale that our own globalization allows, gives us the edge to successfully compete in these important markets,” said Del Castillo. “We are starting with PC games, but we will soon establish the company as a multiplatform publisher. With our global know-how and great game content, we’re set to make an impact from the start.”

Lisa Rivera, who has worked for such noted video game companies such as Take Two Interactive, Nintendo of America, Inc. and GT Interactive, brings twenty plus years of video game industry sales and marketing experience to City Interactive’s team of experts.

“City Interactive has a great team of people dedicated to making great games,” said Rivera. “I am so excited to be a part of the team launching the company in the U.S. and Canada. Our flagship title Art of Murder is sure to be a hit with adventure gamers, and this is just the start of the great games the company will offer.”

Based in Warsaw, Poland, City Interactive debuted on the Warsaw Stock Exchange in November 2007 with much success. City Interactive aims to offer affordable games for casual and special interest gamers with a wide range of titles for the PC, Handhelds and Next-Gen consoles.
