British developer Sumo Digital have worked on a hell of a lot of games, and now they’re working on some more. Today the company announced that their main Sheffield studio and recently acquired Red Kite Games are partnering with publisher 2K on new projects. That’s projects plural, so anywhere from two to forty-six games could be in the works.
Gary Dunn, Sumo Digital Managing Director was understandably a bit chuffed at being able to announce that his company will have some things to announce in the future. He said “We’re delighted to be working with 2K and look forward to disclosing details of the projects in due course.”
Sumo Digital’s growth in the last few years has been rapid, with the company having opened a studio in 2007, before opening Sumo Nottingham in 2016, picking up CCP Newcastle after the Icelandic Eve developer decided to offload the team, then acquiring The Chinese Room in August of 2018 and then picking up Red Kit Games and opening a Leamington Spa studio in February of this year. The independent developer is now well over 500 developers.
While the company is perhaps best known for their work on Sonic All-Stars Racing, LittleBigPlanet 3 and Crackdown 3, they’ve contributed on a lot of other games. The Forza series has often leant on their services, they’ve been involved in Mortal Kombat 11 and the revived Hitman series. Currently, they’re working on another long-in-development game, Dead Island 2, as well as Project Nova with CCP Games.
Oh, and these projects with 2K.
