Description About Splash Damage
We founded Splash Damage with a mission to create lifelong friendships amongst our players and our staff by building the world's most engaging multiplayer experiences. We only team up with the world's leading partners and have worked with many of gaming's most beloved universes over the years.
Our studio culture is built around autonomy, friendliness, and constant learning, and we look after our talent with a comprehensive benefits package. The Sunday Times named Splash Damage the UK's 47th Best Company to Work For in 2018, and we've been awarded their Best Companies accreditation four years running. We also believe our teams create better work when they have a range of perspectives and opinions to draw from, and we are committed to increasing diversity across our studio to consistently enable that.
We are currently working on numerous exciting titles for PC and consoles, including Gears 5, Gears Tactics, Halo: The Master Chief Collection and a few that haven't been announced yet. Come join us!
