Core Design co-founders Jeremy Heath-Smith and Adrian Heath-Smith have announced the formation of a brand new studio based in Derby called Circle Studio. A further 35 former employees of Core Design have joined Circle Studio and are negotiating two brand new titles for current and next generation platforms.
