55 new jobs at Popcap

GAMING company Popcap is to double its workforce in Dublin over the coming years.

The firm, behind the Plants vs Zombies game, aims to have 110 on staff within the next three years.

The Seattle company established its European HQ in Dublin six years ago but recent reports show that revenue dropped by 55pc in 2009, as sales fell from €10.2m to €6.7m.

But PopCap secured a €480,000 research and development grant from the IDA in June 2009 and got a capital contribution of €471,000 from its parent.
