First class service game development

Join our team


Sumo Leamington was established in March 2019. Managed and operated by a team of industry veterans with deep experience of service-based games. The studio vision statement is quite simply 'We make you look forward to tomorrow'; a vision to make games which players will keep coming back to - day after day, year after year.

At Sumo Leamington we have three core specialisms:


Our team is managed and operated by industry veterans with a wealth of experience in service-based games.


We have a vision to make games which players will keep coming back to - day after day, year after year.


While we work on console and PC titles, we have also applied our skills successfully in the mobile market.

We believe that by putting people and purpose first, our studio culture is one that drives performance, boosts enthusiasm, and is something that the team are proud to say they are part of. If you are looking for somewhere special, come and join us.

"Over the past two decades I have worked for some great companies. Sumo Leamington is more than all of those, it's a caring workplace family that puts the best into you to get the best out. Everyone in the studio shares the same passion for the projects that they work on. This is all inspired my exceptional managers and one of the very best Studio Directors in the business.

Sumo Leamington is more than a games development studio, it is a games development family."

Leamington by name, remote-first by nature! At Sumo Leamington we have a team of over 100 people, spread across more than 12 different countries all over the world. This enables us to recruit and retain some of the best talent in the industry regardless of location, while giving our team the flexibility to work from wherever they like and enjoy a better work-life balance. We also have regular social activities, both in-person and online, which give everyone the chance to build relationships and get to know their colleagues. 

Our physical studio is in Leamington Spa, the heart of the UK games industry. For those wishing to immerse themselves in the video game development community, Leamington is the place to be! Our current studio a space for collaboration, creativity and the sharing of ideas, which our team can use as much or as little as they wish. In late ‘23 we will be moving to a new, state-of-the-art studio space, which those who prefer a more hybrid approach to work are welcome to use. 

We're proud of our studio, which has been recognised as one of the best companies to work for in's Best Places to Work awards multiple times. We have also picked up an award for Best Diversity, highlighting our commitment to creating an inclusive studio culture.
