Established in 2012, Atom Republic is an independent developer and publishing studio based in Woking, UK.  Atom Republic are the creators of Atom Universe; a virtual world available on PS4 and PC which innovatively allows cross-play between both platforms.

Our first venture into the realm of virtual worlds was with Sony's PlayStation® Home, where we quickly became one of the most thrilling and fastest-growing developers on the platform. Now we are developing our own ever-evolving world, and that’s where you come in!

Development at our studio is exciting and challenging; we work quickly on an iterative basis with regular releases, meaning there is always something new just around the corner.
