Newsbrief: Although UK-based Blitz Games Studios was closed down just a couple of months ago, the company's co-founders have already set a new studio in motion, and hired back a portion of its staff.

Philip and Andrew Oliver closed down Blitz in September, after 23 years in the business, citing "frustrations with clients, the global economic crisis, and more than our fair share of simple bad luck."

Now the pair has founded Radiant Worlds, reports Develop, alongside former Blitz COO Richard Smithies. Although details on the studio are light right now, it has reportedly hired around 50 staffers.

A "whois" check of the Radiant Worlds website suggests that the new studio was formed within a week of the closure of Blitz.
