R&D in London

We’re based on the heart of central London, bring together experts from more than twenty different nationalities, making R&D is a uniquely international place to work.

And we all work with the same love for games and a shared vision – to develop advanced software that will drive the future of PlayStation and benefit the PlayStation developer community:
