The next generation starts here.

A visionary game development studio founded in 2012, Firesprite builds innovative showcase titles for PlayStation platforms as part of the PlayStation Studios family.

Led by a management team with over 100 years of collective experience in art, business, design and technical disciplines, we have expanded to a team of over 250 developers! (We call ourselves ‘sprites’!)

This is Liverpool

This is Liverpool

Our studio is situated right in the vibrant heart of Liverpool city centre, close to all major transport links in the North West.  It’s a city with a rich history and heritage in video games, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Whether you prefer city living, small villages or sleepy seaside towns the region has it all.
"I love Liverpool because of the people. There’s a lot to see and do in this relatively small city, and a lot of people you can mix with from all over the world."
Sebastian Castilho

"One thing that is wonderful about Liverpool is its proximity to the countryside and Welsh mountains. One minute you can be eating sushi at one of the best sushi restaurants in the UK, and just over an hour later you can look back towards the city from the top of Moel Famau, a Welsh Mountain."

Remote Creativity

Remote Creativity

As a studio we are currently operating remotely to ensure the safety of our staff and their families. Wellbeing is important to us and we have provided an Employee Assistance Programme and Mental Health support along with a tailored Remote Onboarding Process for New Starters. We foresee a flexible future of remote, in-house and combination working at Firesprite and we are currently building towards that vision.
