"It says something that a studio working on one or two big console or PC games has to have offices around the globe to keep working on a round-the-clock basis", noted a GamesBeat report about the United Kingdom studio's opening.
Publisher 2K announced Nick Baynes will lead Hangar 13 in Brighton. Baynes was the game director for Split/Second, and he has worked in game development for over twenty-five years. Last month, Kotaku reported that the developer was struggling to figure out what their next project would be but it seems like the opening of this new studio indicates that Hangar 13 is moving forward with a new project. Baynes has years of development history which he will be bringing to the studio.
Furthermore talking about the new office he added that this "new office will allow the studio to tap into the rich game development talent pool throughout the United Kingdom and Europe".
The new studio will collaborate with Hangar 13's teams in Novato, California and the Czech Republic, across development on all future projects, including "an unannounced AAA project" to be published by 2K Games."We're incredibly excited to welcome Nick and the Brighton team into our growing Hangar 13 family", said Global Studio Head Haden Blackman.
Having said that, what are your thoughts on this new expansion?
