With a 1,000-strong workforce split evenly across Russia and Ukraine, the outbreak of war on Feb. 24 hurt one European gaming company perhaps more than any other.

Stockholm-based G5 Entertainment AB is now conducting a major overhaul of its organizational footprint by opening offices in Poland, Turkey, Georgia and Montenegro. According to Chief Executive Officer Vlad Suglobov the aim of the changes is two-fold: to diversify its staff base and to offer safe relocation for those forced to flee their home countries.
