Christian will join the team in Hamburg, bringing his extensive experience and proven track record in the gaming industry.

Sunday, a leader in hybrid-casual development, is excited to announce the appointment of Christian Balazs as the new Director of Games. 

The mobile games market has undergone significant changes, with hyper-casual gaming evolving from a blue ocean of opportunities into a highly competitive red ocean market. As the industry shifts, Sunday recognizes the growing potential in hybrid-casual games, which require a more professional and planned approach to development. To stay ahead, Sunday is committed to assembling the right team and employing the best tools and processes.

Christian Balazs, formerly of SYBO, Outfit7, and Goodgame Studios, is the ideal leader to guide Sunday through its transformation into a hybrid-casual gaming company. With his extensive expertise in mass audience games and F2P systems, Christian will play a pivotal role in advancing Sunday’s success by building high-performance teams and developing a hybrid-casual product portfolio. Christian’s leadership marks a significant milestone, driving Sunday to new heights and solidifying its position as a leader in the mobile gaming industry. As a key part of the applike group, supported by Bertelsmann, Sunday already produces globally popular games.

Christian Balazs’ unique blend of skills and experience makes him the perfect fit to lead Sunday into its next phase of growth and innovation. At Sunday, we already boast a massive pool of talented hyper-casual developers. The addition of Christian to our team will further enhance our ability to innovate and elevate our mobile game development to the next level, ensuring even more engaging gameplay and profitable monetization strategies. His leadership skills and ability to drive change will be instrumental in reshaping Sunday’s game development strategy.

I am excited to embrace the challenge here at Sunday. I look forward to collaborating with our talented team to not only further establish Hamburg as a premier gaming hub but also to lead our successful transition from hyper-casual to hybrid-casual games, setting new industry standards along the way. Plus, as a lifelong gamer, I’m particularly excited to blend my passion for quality with Sundays’ knowledge of game design to create experiences that resonate with players worldwide.
