Pitbull opens third UK studio in the Midlands

Specialising in Unreal Engine 4 and Epic Games' projects

Pitbull is opening its third studio in the UK, based in Birmingham, and focused on Unreal Engine 4 and Epic Games' projects

The new outfit could be a boon for the region, recently devastated by the closure of Blitz Studios after 23 years.

"The decision to open a third games studio in the Midlands was an easy one - this area has a strong history of games development and we already employ great programmers in the area," said Robert Troughton, founder of Pitbull.

"As a company we offer all employees challenging and rewarding careers, working on the cutting edge of technology."

Pitbull already has offices in Guildford and Sunderland, and is working across current and next-generation platforms.

Done a lot of work with these guys. Absolutely fantastic bunch, and given how closely they work with epic on a day to day basis, it's a huge positive on your CV - definitely worth considering. And that goes not just for the new studio, but the existing ones, too.

But where?
The Midlands is a very big place.

This sounds fantastic. I only hope this isnt a case of over extending when times are good, because I've seen and worked with alot of spectacular indie UK developers who have had to consolidate over the years....

Like Bruce, my question is "where in the Midlands?"

Other than that it's great to hear that the Midlands isn't a forgotten place for game developers since we did have Eurocom here and of course Core Design before they moved to London. Will certainly be interesting to see what they are up to and how they go about it in their new home.
