Since that time, the studio was working on an unannounced AAA name. These days, the 2K subsidiary demonstrated that a new Hanger 13 studio has been started in Brighton, UK to work on such a game and all of their future endeavors.
This is actually the next Hanger 13 studio, as it joins creation clubs in Novato, California and the Czech Republic. Based on parent firm 2K, this brand new Brighton studio is directed by Nick Baynes, a veteran game programmer who’s known in the UK for his job at Black Rock Studios on names like Split/Second.
“The UK has a number of their most talented game developers on the planet and that I couldn’t be much more excited to work with Andy again to create a world class group at Brighton and help forge the future Hangar 13. If you are an experienced game developer seeking to combine a fervent AAA studio, then we wish to hear from you. ”
Meanwhile, the Hangar 13 International Studio Head Haden Blackman had the following to say about expanding in the UK:
“We are extremely excited to cheer Nick and the Brighton team into our growing Hangar 13 household. The new office enables us to tap into the rich game development talent pool throughout the uk and Europe and will lead to better, more varied games which resonate with the widest possible audience. ”
