Atomhawk gains TIGA STAR Award for Excellence


Atomhawk is proud to announce it has received the prestigious TIGA STAR Award. The independently assessed award recognises excellence and best practise within the games industry.

TIGA’s evaluation of Atomhawk praised the company’s clear vision for enduring success, its commitment to ‘no-crunch’ culture and the promotion of equality of opportunity, its innovative approach to the sharing of knowledge and information, and its recognition of excellent work internally.

“We’re thrilled to have been awarded the prestigious TIGA STAR. The team put a lot of effort into making the studio a great place to work so it’s lovely to be formally recognised for this” said Tim Wilson, Managing Director Atomhawk. “We aim to provide our team with an environment where they can create great work in a sustainable way. Over the years Atomhawk has invested significantly in ways to support, reward and develop the team and we’ll continue to do so in the future.”

The TIGA STAR system was developed to benchmark the way companies of all sizes across the gaming sector are run in order to encourage best practice. The TIGA STAR system examines a games business in four areas: Strategy, Teams, Advancement and Recognition. The studio passed all four of the TIGA STAR themes with flying colours.

This award follows Atomhawk’s collaboration with a number of high profile clients in the videogame industry including  2K, EA, Microsoft, and WB Games. The team recently moved into a new custom studio in the RIGA building overlooking the Gateshead Quayside and was named as one of the top 30 places to work in the North East in the most 2021 Best Companies listings.

Atomhawk is the second studio with the Sumo Group family to have achieved the TIGA STAR Award, with Sumo Digital receiving theirs earlier this year.
