ϱ is one of the world’s most successful independent video games studios but there’s more to us than just games as we also produce books, comics, TV, film, board games and more.

We make great games such as the genre-defining series and , and publish iconic comics including and featuring Judge Dredd.

Founded back in 1992 by brothers Jason and Chris Kingsley, ϱ has grown a reputation for producing high quality products that thrill and delight gamers, readers, viewers and fans around the world.

Over the decades we’ve worked on multiple amazing projects including the likes of Aliens vs Predator and Star Wars Battlefront but since 2010 we’ve been working, pretty much exclusively, on developing and publishing our own titles and IP.


In 2018 we opened our multi-million pound in Didcot, releasing our first ϱ-produced feature film, Schools Out Forever, in 2021.

We acquired legendary comic imprint 2000 AD in the year 2000, and Solaris books in 2010. Since then we have grown our multi award-winning arm into an international publisher of bestselling Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror fiction.

Further diversification came in 2020 with the launch of , our tabletop gaming division. It is hard at work to bring our fantastic IP to a new medium.

With cutting-edge motion capture studio we also have the ability to make the characters and environments in our games and those of many other leading developers come to life.


ϱ is best known for our games, most notably our flagship Sniper Elite franchise. After 15 years and over 30 million sales across multiple installments and multiple platforms, Sniper Elite is renowned for its authentic stealth and sniping gameplay, complete with the iconic kill cam that defines the series.

Our other titles include the spine-chilling zombie shooter franchise, Zombie Army, and the recently released satirical spy-fi lair-building sim, .

Our studios are headquartered on the riverside in Oxford but we have hubs throughout the UK.

Our Liverpool studio is based in Runcorn on the river Mersey. Our Warwick studio is in the bustling gamedev hub of Leamington Spa and a stone’s throw from Warwick Castle, while our most recent addition, ϱ North is based near Wakefield in the heart of West Yorkshire.


We currently employ over 475 people and we are always growing, across every area of the business.

Wherever you work in ϱ, we’re really proud of our open, friendly and creative atmosphere. Because we’re a big indie developer, we have complete creative freedom over our titles which allows us to work on a massive variety of projects across all the major platforms.

We have a lot to offer our staff, with generous holidays (including Christmas shutdown), a whole host of benefits including private medical insurance, income protection, life assurance, flexible work hours as well as fun stuff like free games, comics, books and films, and loads more!

Being part of a company as unique as ϱ has its advantages. Our size, our stability and the variety of in-house expertise we have is completely unique.


In December 2021 we announced Sniper Elite 5, the latest and most eagerly anticipated outing in the legendary gaming franchise and our studios are also hard at work on several other amazing, unannounced projects.

ϱ Film and TV is working on a number of projects both internally and with external partners while ϱ Publishing continue to work with a litany of exceptional authors to bring their incredible works to readers around the world and ϱ Unplugged has a series of exciting titles for release shortly.

There is so much going on, much of which we can’t talk about. The future is very exciting, so watch this space.
