FIRESPRITE – A development studio based in the heart of Liverpool UK

Firesprite is a new game studio, that was formed by former members of SCE Studio Liverpool based in North England, UK. The team shared a vision of creating a new game studio and thus Firesprite was born.

Aside from helping develop one launch titles for the PlayStation 4, an augmented reality game the Playroom,  Firesprite also has a 20 year history of developing quality titles. They have worked on games such as:

  • Lemmings
  • Shadow of the Beast
  • Rollcage
  • Colony Wars
  • WipEout
  • Motorstorm
  • F1 and
  • Killzone

Graeme Ankers, Managing Director has this to say about Firesprite’s 20 year history:

“At the start we looked back at the games we delivered over the past    20 years. Our journey goes back to Psygnosis and through to Studio    Liverpool. Individuals on the team have worked on games that shaped    the industry including titles for hardware launches that span PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3 and PSVita. The next step of that journey is Firesprite”

 

Art Director Lee Carus is ” very proud and honoured to have been part of such an exciting project”. And Firesprite Technical Director and Programming Director, Chris Roberts and Dr. Stuart Lovergrove say:

“We have been working hard on  creating a new game engine and tool chain that allows us to put the creative power in the best hands – the Artists and Designers. That  puts us in a great position delivering the best experiences for players. It also allows us to get our games running on multiple  platforms including mobile – so we can deliver platform specific features that make the best games”

 

Firesprite is committed to delivering games on new platforms and new experiences. We really hope you have as much fun playing  our games as we do making them.

So what else can we expect from Firesprite? I guess we all have to wait and see. And with having a 20 year history behind their belt, we can only expect great things.
