The developers behind Mafia III have expanded with a new studio in the UK.
Hangar 13 has announced that they have opened a studio in Brighton lead by Nick Baynes, former director of Disney racing games Split/Second and Pure at Black Rock Studio. The Brighton studio is coordinating with Hangar 13’s California and Czech Republic studios while working on a still unannounced AAA title.
“We’re incredibly excited to welcome Nick and the Brighton team into our growing Hangar 13 family,” said Haden Blackman, global studio head of Hangar 13.
It is unknown when Take Two intends to reveal Hangar 13’s new project.
One of the fundamental problems with Mafia III was that it too quickly relied on repetitive mission design for content, so scaling up to multiple studios might help that.
