Ex-Playground Games boss launches new studio Lighthouse Games

Lighthouse Games

Ex-Playground Games boss Gavin Raeburn has launched a new studio, Lighthouse Games, and their leadership boasts more veteran devs.

The new developer is described as a “AAA studio” of “world-class developers” that are currently working on an unannounced and brand new IP. The developer is also hiring for a number of positions – check them all out here.

“I’m delighted that 30 former colleagues and other industry heavyweights have chosen to join me at Lighthouse,” said Raeburn. “With Horizon, Playground and I created one of the most successful Xbox franchises of all time. We delivered significant commercial success year after year, to massive critical acclaim, following the success from my time at Codemasters leading Dirt, Grid and F1. That DNA is now at Lighthouse, and with it, we intend to build something truly special using all our experience to create a new genre-defining franchise.”

Lighthouse is looking to foster a collaborative environment that “embodies what it means to be at the bleeding edge of video game development,” while also enabling developers to produce their best work.
