Rocksteady founders set up new studio Hundred Star Games

The two founders of Rocksteady Studios, Sefton Hill and Jamie Walker, have set up a brand new company.

As spotted by Polygon, the duo has established Hundred Star Games in London. Information from Companies House shows that the firm was founded in February 2023, while the outfit's website went live in October. The website says that the studio is going to be working on triple-A titles, and also makes reference to "100 People", perhaps suggesting that it isn't planning to expand massively.

At the moment, Hundred Star has hired around 25 people, according to Great Place to Work. The studio is registered with that organisation for 12 months, starting in December 2023. 

"With innovation at our core, we're dedicated to pushing boundaries, embracing diversity, and fostering a vibrant gaming community," the firm's blurb on that site said.

"Our empowering company culture is unique to the industry which encourages leadership at all levels, accountability, team support, vulnerability, and connection."

Hill and Walker left Rocksteady in 2022
