About Playground Games

We've been making games for other people for over 20 years.
In 2009 we set up Playground Games to make them for ourselves.

Playground Games was established in 2009, bringing together some of the most experienced and talented developers from the UK industry, with the vision to create big budget console titles for a global audience.

From these relatively humble beginnings, we now occupy three floors in our state of the art studio in the centre of Leamington Spa, with more than 100 staff making up the Playground family. 

We don’t intend to become the largest studio in the world, but we do intend to become the best. Our debut title, Forza Horizon, released in 2012, was met with critical acclaim and commercial success; winning 18 Driving Game of the Year awards.

Our latest title, Forza Horizon 2, takes players onto the next generation of console hardware with stunning results, marrying incredible visuals with thrilling gameplay.
