Back in 2016, Hanger 13 Published Mafia III on PC, PS4, along with Xbox One. Ever since that time, the studio has been working on an unannounced AAA name. These days, the 2K subsidiary revealed that a fresh Hanger 13 studio has been started in Brighton, UK to work on such a game and all of their future jobs.
This is actually the third largest Hanger 13 studio, even as it joins creation teams from Novato, California and the Czech Republic. According to parent company 2K, this new Brighton studio is led by Nick Baynes, a veteran game programmer who is famous in the united kingdom for his work at Black Rock Studios on titles like Split/Second. Nick Baynes had the following to say about taking on this new job:
“The UK has some of their most talented game developers on the planet and I couldn’t be much more excited to use Andy again to build a world class team at Brighton and help invent the future of Hangar 13. If you are an experienced game developer seeking to combine a fervent AAA studio, we wish to hear from you personally. ”
Meanwhile, the Hangar 13 Global Studio Head Haden Blackman had the following to say about expanding in the UK:
“We are extremely excited to welcome Nick along with the Brighton staff into our developing Hangar 13 household. The new office enables us to tap into the rich game development talent pool throughout the United Kingdom and Europe and will result in greater, more diverse games which resonate with the widest possible audience. ”
