About us

Stellar Entertainment is a video game development studio based in Guildford, Surrey at the heart of a thriving community of game developers and publishers. We are a group of ambitious, collaborative and passionate developers supported by industry veterans with a collectively diverse and impressive softography, dedicated to creating an empowering, family first working environment.

We have recently released Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered and Burnout Paradise Remastered to critical acclaim across multiple platforms.

Having worked on a string of hits, winning lots of awards, we know what it takes to ship quality entertainment. We are a focused, motivated, innovative team that puts game entertainment front and centre of all that we do.


We approach everything we do with the single-minded goal of being the best. We will take on the difficult work so that those who have a vested interest in what we create – both our partners and our players – can enjoy an unparalleled experience.


Whether it’s the creation of our games, the development of collaborations with high profile industry partners or the building of a long-term future for our studio, we have what it takes to do amazing work every day.


Making games is a team sport and we know our team performs at its best when our people can work in a culture of trust and flexibility and feel they have the freedom to take care of all the other important aspects of their lives, as well as their work.

Job Description

We’ve all been there. Important deadline this Friday and it’s your child’s sports day. Dilemma? Not at Stellar. We understand hit games are made, not just, by a cast of seasoned Programmers, Artists & Designers but also by the support of their families. We have built a culture where you don’t need to feel torn between important family events & spending time in front of a computer screen. You go to the sports day. Every time. At Stellar we call this policy “Family First”.

Stellar Entertainment Software was founded in August 2016 and has worked with the biggest in the business. We had our first number 1 with Burnout Paradise Remastered and have been cooking up something pretty special since then.

We are a well funded development studio with a very bright future. The studio is made up of many industry veterans with an incredible impressive softography between us.

We are based in leafy Guildford the capital of the UK games industry.
