make the best
games out there
Our rock-solid team are a passionate bunch, empowered to make incredible games alongside some of the largest games studios in the world.
the spark that kicked everything off
We love it when a plan comes together.
MPG was founded in 2018 by us: industry veterans and good friends Rik Alexander, Steve Bennett and Rocco Loscalzo. After years working together at various companies making multiplayer games and multiplayer tooling, we had the lightbulb moment that building a company focusing solely on multiplayer wasn’t as ridiculous an idea as we’d first assumed. Maybe not everyone had these skills in their studio?
Very quickly we realised that dev teams and publishers need highly skilled and experienced people to bolster their teams. The biggest studios and publishers around the world are relying more and more on this way of working which sets them up for flexibility and success. They might find that they’re unable to find the right skills for their project, or they may only want to keep a core team in the studio and use trusted partners to do the rest.
However our partners need help, we’re always able to engage with them, assess the requirements of the project and react with our proposed solution or, if we believe we aren’t able to knock it out the park, we always say no. It turns out that long term partnerships are built on trust and sometimes that requires you to say no.
what happened next
With continued growth and ambitious results, MPG was acquired by Improbable in September 2019, allowing us to supercharge our ambitions whilst still remaining technology agnostic and laser focused on client success.
Having establishing ourselves as the number one Co-Dev partner in multiplayer games, and hiring the best talent in the world, at the beginning of 2022 MPG extended our services to include Full-Dev and Analytics.
Full-Dev for us is the logical next step on from Co-Dev. We’re in the enviable position of being able to work on the world’s finest and brightest multiplayer titles, which is very rare in game development. Full-Dev allows us to bring all of that experience together, mix in our years of game development heritage and provide multi-disciplinary teams of producers, artists, designers, QA and engineers, who will take full responsibility for content delivery, and deliver complete game projects from start to finish.
And our highly skilled Analytics team had been gathering data in stealth mode and building their powerful analytical capabilities in the 12 months running up to 2022. We can share that expertise in data science with anyone that needs it. We have a wealth of valuable data and know how to use it to make your game more compelling, more sticky, and more fun for players.
Groundbreaking projects and exceptional growth only happen if you’re lucky enough to hire fantastic people. We were lucky, and they are now part of the fabric of MPG. A global and diverse community that's driven to deliver success and create a company that everyone inside MPG loves to work at.
It’s been a great journey so far, and it’s only just begun (cue The Carpenters).
What we believe in
respect and trust
We treat each other with respect and trust, clients and colleagues alike.
We exhibit positivity in all our interactions.
delivery of value
We're committed to providing exceptional value to our clients.
We want our team to enjoy their work, interactions with colleagues, and the culture they have helped us cultivate.
connected across the world
Our incredible team is made up of global players.
We always knew we'd want to hire the best people, regardless of their location. So we set ourselves up as a remote-friendly company, well before working from home became cool!
Our HQ is in Nottingham, UK and we have MPG Canada and MPG Spain. We've got teammates in Australia, Argentina, South Africa, Serbia and (almost) everywhere in-between. This makes for a really great mix of cultures and there's always someone in a timezone close to you!
avg play time: over ten years
Super talented and experienced teammates.
Our people have a very impressive collective back catalogue, with an average of 6 AAA titles under their belts before they even join MPG. Many of us have worked in the industry for over 20 years, and at time of counting, we'd clocked up an impressive average of 10.8 years.
This breadth of experience means there's probably not a game you can think of that we haven't worked on, or a problem we haven't solved somewhere down the line. It also means we can offer great opportunities for learning and development for those newer to the industry.
