Alex’s role in leading our world-building and content strategy is key to our future success and we’re delighted to have him on board.”

Amancio’s appointment is a significant milestone for FunPlus, and his creative vision is expected to bring a unique perspective to the company. With popular titles like King of Avalon and State of Survival under its belt, FunPlus has a proven track record of success, and Amancio’s expertise is likely to contribute significantly to the company’s growth.
