Making the announcement, the studio said “Creative Assembly announces new UK studio alongside the newly designed Motion Capture facility. As the UK’s largest games developer, this expansion supports our 800 permanent employees following 20% growth over the last year.”
Commenting on this, the studio’s Director Gareth Edmondson said “This is an incredibly exciting time for Creative Assembly with the highly-anticipated Total War: WARHAMMER III on the horizon and our new sci-fi-shooter IP in development. We are already home to some of the best talent out there and we are growing.”
