Our history

Based in Leeds, West Yorkshire, Red Kite was established in 2012 to become the leading AAA game development destination in the North of England.

Founded by Simon Iwaniszak, and now settled into the beautiful Grade-II listed Park Row House in Leeds city centre, the Red Kite team includes industry heavyweights who've been instrumental in developing many of the biggest titles of the past two decades for the likes of Rockstar, Sony, 2K, SEGA, Microsoft and Activision.

We’ve had the pleasure of working on incredible titles with fantastic partners, leaving our mark on 2K's Mafia series, Remedy’s Control Ultimate Edition, SEGA’s Two Point Hospital, EA’s Knockout City and many more.
