BAFTA-nominated actor and producer Abubakar Salim announced today that he has launched a new UK-based games studio Silver Rain Games.

Known for voicing characters for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth and The Bradwell Conspiracy, the prolific actor confirmed his new development studio plans in an online press release via his new website 

Alongside his plans to star as Father in Ridley Scott’s Raised by Wolves television series this year, Abubakar Salim will be creating and directing a new game IP with Silver Rain's Head of Studio, Melissa Phillips (formerly BAFTA Games Programme Manager) and a growing team of developers. 

Speaking of his new venture, Salim noted, “The games industry is so inspiring. I grew up in games, so it only feels natural to make the leap into creating them. I want to be able to give back to an industry and audience that has supported me and hopefully bring a fresh perspective to the table.”

Mel Phillips states, “It’s hugely exciting to begin working on a new IP. We are currently in the prototype stage. We are keen to hear from all levels of talent who might potentially fit into our team and will be looking for funding opportunities over the next few months.”
