Founded in 1987 and based in Horsham, UK, The Creative Assembly made its name in 2000 with the smash-hit PC strategy game Shogun: Total War. Since then, the Total War series has gone from strength to strength, and last year, we reprised the medieval Japanese era with Shogun 2, which won more awards than we really have cabinet-space for.
From a starting team of five, we now employ nearly 250 super-talented developers from all around the world, and we’re still growing. Complementing the Total War team, our rapidly-expanding console studio is currently working on the industry’s best-kept secret: an entirely new cross-platform title based on the Alien IP, that goes where other Alien games fear to tread. We’re not quite ready to show it off yet, but when the time comes – let’s just say we’re definitely going to need that new trophy cabinet.
Sited within easy commuting distance of London and Brighton, we’re in a fantastic part of the world, and a recent office refurb means we now work in a super-swish environment that reflects the talent we house. A studio’s nothing without people, and we have some of the very best in the industry – people you’d be proud to number among your friends and colleagues. We have a focussed and friendly culture which is non-corporate and enormously professional, and we reward creativity. That’s the way we plan to keep it.
