26 November 2020, London UK – One of the UK’s largest independent video game developers, Mediatonic, announces that their Leamington Spa location has officially found its home, with a new studio to open at the Mill Street creative hub. Mediatonic plans to bring its own distinctive flavour of creativity to Leamington Spa—a town that already takes the crown as a melting pot for game development talent in the UK—helping attract a new wave of diverse, passionate professionals to the gaming community. 

 

Part of the Tonic Games Group, Mediatonic is best known for their wonderfully vibrant original titles–including hit battle royale and most downloaded PS Plus game of all time, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. Mediatonic plans to welcome industry talent across a wide range of disciplines to join their growing team.

‘Mediatonic Leamington Spa' will be spearheaded by the company’s Vice President of Art, Phil Warner, who comments: 

"More than anything, Mediatonic has always looked for a sense of community in our studio locations—that’s something we feel is hugely important within our teams, but also in the way we engage with other local games companies and developers. We've already built some brilliant relationships with other games companies within the town, and we're hugely appreciative for the welcome we've received from both the industry and the local council. For our part, we’re excited to join such a vibrant game development community and look forward to the opportunity to share expertise and stories.”

By making use of the many additional facilities in Mill St, from world-class presentation spaces to on-site podcast studios, Mediatonic Leamington Spa will be an important complement to the Tonic Games Group’s existing network of studios across London, Madrid, Brighton and Guildford. 

Mediatonic’s new studio will operate under COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines while they’re in place, but the team are eager to warmly welcome new faces once everything’s fully open. With a long-term commitment to creating engaging seasonal content for the Fall Guys playerbase and with plenty of other exciting projects in the pipeline, there should be some great opportunities for people looking to take their next step in games with Mediatonic.
