Starlight Games is a brand new, UK-based development studio, and it has some real video game veterans among its ranks. Furthermore, the new team has hit the ground running, with several titles already at various stages of production.

The studio is founded by Gary Nichols, a Psygnosis alumnus, and he's joined by a senior management team including Nick Burcombe, best known for his work on the WipEout series; Andy Santos, co-creator of Skate and director of Horizon Call of the Mountain; and founding member of Gamesys, Ben Cronin. Utilising Unreal Engine 5 for its projects, the experienced leadership is putting an emphasis on discovering young new talent to fill out its team.

As mentioned, Starlight already has a few games in the pipeline. First and foremost is House of Golf 2, a crazy golf game with couch co-op, coming to PS5 later in the year. More exciting is a "futuristic sports title" being directed by Burcombe, with more details arriving "in the coming months", and a sci-fi strategy roguelite, again with more info coming soon. Rounding things off will be some experiences made for Fortnite, headed up by the studio's younger members to give them practical experience with Unreal.
