The people who founded Rocksteady Studios have started a new development studio.
As reported by Polygon, Rocksteady founders Sefton Hill and Jamie Walker started a new London-based studio called Hundred Star Games, which aims to make AAA games with “only 100 industry veterans and emerging talents”.
Polygon found that a number of former Rocksteady staff have joined Hundred Star Games, according to LinkedIn profiles.
Rocksteady’s first game was 2006’s Urban Chaos: Riot Response but found critical and commercial success for its Batman Arkham series, which includes 2009’s groundbreaking Batman: Arkham Asylum, 2011’s Batman: Arkham City, and 2015’s Batman: Arkham Knight. Batman owner Warner Bros. bought Rocksteady in 2010.
Hill and Walker announced their exit from Rocksteady in October 2022 amid the development of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. At the time, Warner Bros. Interactive president David Haddad said Suicide Squad was “nearly finished”, but a number of delays pushed the controversial project back to February 2, 2024.
While we don’t know what Hundred Star Games has up its sleeve, we have a much better idea of what to expect from Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League now it’s nearly out.
