The studio is was formed by ex-Sly Cooper creator Dev Madan, along with Matthew Scott previously of Crave Entertainment and Monolith, and Ricci Rukavina, creative director at Universal Studios and Vivendi Games.
"People have gathered from top studios to create a small, tight-knit crew with well over a century of industry experience," said the company.
"We draw on our experience shipping best selling and critically acclaimed titles such as: Sly Cooper, Spyro The Dragon, Crash Bandicoot, Halo, Jak and Daxter, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, Dungeon Siege, No One Lives Forever, and many more."
The company's first title has already been signed by a publisher, and is due for release by the autumn.
