Rocksteady co-founders open new AAA studio
Sefton Hill and Jamie Walker, co-founders of Batman Arkham developer Rocksteady, have launched a new London-based studio known as Hundred Star Games.
Walker and Hill announced back in 2022 that they had left Rocksteady after 18 years to "start a new adventure together in games," and it has now been revealed that they have founded "AAA games studio startup" Hundred Star Games.
Not much is known about the studio, but Polygon has discovered that both founders are listed as directors on business data website Endole. Its Great Place to Work listing describes the studio as a "video game start-up based in East London" looking to put together a "small team of only 100 industry veterans and emerging talents."
Some of its employees appear to be former Rocksteady lead developers and directors who have followed Walker and Hill to the new company, according to LinkedIn profiles discovered by Polygon. The studio's website is basic, but it does include an email address for those interested in working there.
With the company only having been officially founded in April 2023, its website launching in October, and no public announcement of its opening, we're likely to have to wait a while before hearing anything about any of its projects.
