Creative Assembly announces the launch of a third UK studio in West Sussex, saying it has relocated its motion capture facility to the site (thanks GameWatcher). CA says its 800 permanent employees make it the UK's largest game developer. The announcement includes word that with the millions of copies of Total War Saga: TROY that were given way last summer helped push the Total War series over 36 million lifetime sales. The company emphasizes the benefits of being able to collaborate in an in-person environment, but makes it clear that all of its operations remain fully remote for now in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Here's a bit:
With 800 permanent employees Creative Assembly (CA) represents the largest UK games developer.

The studio has grown by over 20% in the last year and continues to grow its community of fans including the 7.5 million players who rushed to claim A Total War Saga: TROY in a single day in August 2020. The 20-year-old Total War series has sold more than 36 million standalone games and sees over 1.5million players each month.

The addition of the new studio brings CA’s total development space to over 100,000 square feet which encompasses three UK studios, a specialist Motion Capture facility, and an Eastern European base with CA Sofia in Bulgaria. Alongside the opening of a third UK studio, CA has relocated its Motion Capture facility and refurbished all UK sites with a renewed focus on collaborative working environments to support future flexible working plans.
