New Guildford office for Pitbull Studio

And adds new senior artist and programmers to the team

Pitbull Studio is expanding its operations and opening a new studio in Guildford.

Pitbull hopes to draw on the significant talent pool that already exists in the Guildford area, which includes studios like Media Molecule, Lionhead and more recent start ups like 22 Cans.

The company is currently focused on development for Unreal Engine 4, and supporting a number of projects using both that product and its predecessor, the Unreal Engine 3.

The company has already started expanding its team, welcoming senior artist Phil Nixon and programmers Bruce Nesbit, Keith Judge and Luke Parkes to its team. Between them the newcomers have contributed to the Fable franchise, Prey, Driver San Francisco and Rage.

Pitbull was founded in 2009 in Sunderland.

We've been working on this for a while now - huge relief to finally have the news out there ... many thanks to all who helped - and, of course, Fran Mulhern from Recruit3D who almost single-handedly helped us find the people to populate the new studio.

Heh. You're welcome:) But yeah, it's been fantastic. As well as Keith and Luke, I've helped them with another five coders over the last few months, including two this week alone - I think nearly all of the initial Guildford set up as well as others elsewhere. They're a studio that many people haven't heard of, but get very excited about after they've had a chat with them and heard what they're doing.

Another +1 for Guildford, well done and good luck!

I have a theory that if you rub Fran's head a genie will come out. ;)

Now if Fran can get Bruce a Zynga job...I will forever bow to his might and supreme skills as the best recruiter :)
