10th Jun 2021 News

Sumo Group announced 40% growth delivered in a year
that saw twelve games launch or announced (FY20), along with a 3-star Best
Companies accreditation and two BAFTA wins (Best Family Game and Best British
Game) for Sackboy: A Big Adventure. Headcount increased from 766 at the end of
2019 to 1,043 at the end of 2020.

The Group added two new studios in 2020, UK based
Lab42 and Pipeworks on the US West Coast, and at the start of this year added
PixelAnt in Poland, taking the Group’s studios to 13 in five countries.

Carl Cavers, Chief Executive Officer of Sumo Group,
said: “2020 has been an extraordinary year for us in so many ways. Our people
have responded brilliantly to the pandemic restrictions, delivering many
fantastic games, and winning some incredible awards, including two BAFTAs. In
February we announced achieving 3 Star Accreditation in the Best Companies
Survey, which is a massive achievement for the Group.

“The year ahead is packed with even more exciting
opportunities for our talent to shine, and we are excited about the launch of
Secret Mode, our new publishing business, announced in March 2021. Our focus
remains on delivering further strong growth organically and by acquisition, and
the pipeline of opportunities remains strong. We have an enviable level of
visibility on development fees in 2021 and, with our markets continuing to
perform strongly, are increasingly confident about the future of the business.”
