Pitbull Studio has announced that it has appointed to former Pitbull Syndicate veterans in the form of James Parr and Jef Hardy.
Parr, who will take on the role of technical director, has worked in the industry for over 20 years, on titles including Destruction Derby 2, Test Drive, LA Rush and Ferrari Challenge.
Meanwhile Hardy has been assigned the job of design director - he too worked on a host of titles, most recently Wheelman at the now-defunct Midway Newcastle Studio.
Pitbull Studio CEO Robert Troughton, reunited with his former colleagues, revealed that their appointments had been important for the business already.
"Getting both James and Jef involved was key to us winning our first contract," he explained. "We have an amazing team forming here and are looking forward to announcing our first lines of product."
The studio's first game has yet to be announced, but it is thought first details will be revealed shortly.
