This week we learned that Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Cambridge, and SCE London Studio were all hit with layoffs. Following the layoffs came the reveal of Starship studio, a new outfit by Martin Kenwright, founder of Evolution Studios and Digital Image Design. The studio was founded back in 2013, so while not necessarily related to the layoffs, a reveal now helps to show that the UK can still foster gaming.
Kenwright plans to go beyond just games, and his studio will be working in areas like entertainment and health.
"The name Starship hints at the height of our ambitions," Kenwright stated to Games Industry. "Evolution and D.I.D paved the way for what we're doing now, we're aiming to disrupt the market with revolutionary products that fulfill a genuine use and need for consumers."
