Kuju's new Brighton studio developing title for SCEE

Leading British independent developer Kuju Entertainment has announced the latest in a series of development deals with key publishers, with the firm's new Brighton-based studio working on a game prototype for SCEE.

Leading British independent developer Kuju Entertainment has announced the latest in a series of development deals with key publishers, with the firm's new Brighton-based studio working on a game prototype for SCEE.

The new studio, which was formed when Kuju acquired Brighton developer Wide Games - best known for its work on Prisoner of War for Codemasters - will work on a prototype for Sony, with no details of the new game yet available.

It's thought that the prototype work announced by Kuju is a separate project from the "high profile PlayStation 2 title" which was mentioned by the company when it originally acquired Wide Games.

This deal with SCEE brings to four the number of major international publishers that Kuju is working with. The AIM-listed company has previously announced that it is developing unnamed titles for Activision and Konami, and at E3 it was revealed that it is the developer behind Nintendo's forthcoming first-party GameCube title, Advance Wars: Under Fire.

Kuju now has four studios around the UK; as well as its headquarters in Godalming, Surrey, and the new offices in Brighton, it also has development locations in London and Sheffield.
