11th February 2019Posted by: Sumo Digital

Appoints Chris Southall as Studio Director

We are thrilled to announce today that we will be opening a new studio in Leamington Spa, UK and have appointed Chris Southall as its Studio Director.

The new Leamington Spa studio will focus on the development of games for mobile devices, broadening the services offered by Sumo to a wide range of publisher and development partners.

Chris Southall has an extensive track record in the industry, holding leadership roles at SEGA and Codemasters. Prior to joining Sumo Digital, Chris founded and built SEGA HARDlight – SEGA’s dedicated European mobile studio – specialists in producing titles in the Free-to-Play space.

Paul Porter, Managing Director of Sumo Digital said:

“Opening a studio dedicated to mobile development is part of our strategy to broaden the portfolio of services we offer. Chris has a well-deserved reputation throughout the industry as an inspirational leader who’s delivered outstanding results. I’m delighted that he is to build and direct our new team in Leamington Spa.”

Chris Southall, Studio Director, Sumo Digital added:

“Building this new studio, with a clear focus on mobile development is very exciting. I’ve long been a fan of Sumo so am thrilled by the opportunity to both create something new here and to be joining a group of talented studios.”

This new studio becomes the seventh for Sumo Digital, sixth in the UK, and follows hot on the heels of the recent acquisitions of Red Kite Games (Huddersfield) and The Chinese Room (Brighton).
