Shiver Entertainment, a video game development firm led by industry veteran and former Zynga and EA Tiburon executive, John Schappert, is moving to Miami. The company has leased 16,000 square feet on the second floor of The Offices at Sunset Place, near the University of Miami.

“We’d like to help establish Miami as a tech hub for video game development and publishing,” says Schappert. “Miami is a wonderful place to live, work and play with great schools, affordable housing, and incredible weather. The unique and flexible space we will occupy in South Miami will inspire our creative teams while giving us plenty of room to grow.”

The firm’s new space will be designed and built-out to suit Shiver Entertainment’s specific needs, and the firm expects to hire 60 employees by the time the studio opens later this year.
