Brighton’s largest gaming studio moves to Circus Street

The city’s biggest gaming studio has become the latest company to move into a new office development.

Electric Square has signed a lease for two floors at The Office at the Circus Street development in Brighton as the company continues to grow its game development studio.

The studio has been involved in internationally recognized games, such as Assassin’s Creed, Need for Speed, Battlefield and Forza.

Nathan Gouveia, studio head from Electric Square Brighton, said: “We chose The Office at Circus Street because it’s a stunning, modern building based in an exciting new part of the city, surrounded by the buzz of creative organisations, matching our bold ambitions for Electric Square to be the global leader in AAA console game development.”

The team will join the community at Circus Street, which also features the University of Brighton’s art college, White Cloud Coffee and Wolfox’s soon-to-open Japanese restaurant, Fumi.

Rob Sloper, development director at U+I, said: “The addition of Electric Square at our Circus Street development in Brighton, once again underlines Brighton’s place as a global city that attracts world-class talent.

“We always imagined Circus Street would become a new digital and creative hub, and we are happy to see this vision realized with two outstanding industry leaders choosing Circus Street due to its location, award-winning design and highly sustainable specification.”
