Sumo Digital, best known in recent times for developing Team Sonic Racing, has announced it is working on "new projects" with the global game publisher 2K.

While there are no details about the games just yet or the platforms they will be released on, it has been revealed development will take place at Sumo Digital's Sheffield Studio and also the recently acquired Red Kite Games, based in Huddersfield, UK.

Here's what the developer's managing director Gary Dunn had to say about the partnership:

“We’re delighted to be working with 2K and look forward to disclosing details of the projects in due course.”

Sumo Digital started out in the early 2000s with games like OutRun 2. In 2008, it developed Sega Superstars Tennis and this eventually led to it working on Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing and the sequel, Transformed. It helped out with Disney Infinity 3.0 in 2015, and more recently worked on Hitman, Forza Motorsport, Crackdown 3 and Snake Pass.

2K is best known for titles such as NBA 2K19, NBA 2K Playgrounds 2, Borderlands, Civilization and the Sid Meier's series.
