Into Games are super happy to announce that the legendary Creative Assembly are joining forces as one of our inaugural Into Games Industry Partners!
The folks at Creative Assembly are not only one of the biggest, boldest, and oldest studios in the UK, spawning the likes of the Total War franchise and Alien:Isolation, but their groundbreaking Legacy Project sits at the forefront of connecting industry talent with education.
Into Games’ Head of Engagement and Development added this on the announcement of our new partnership:
“Creative Assembly’s Legacy Project has long been an inspiration for us at Into Games, and a guiding star for how we would like to see the UK games industry approach education. Their work has informed much of our own, so it’s an absolute honour to in turn see our work recognised by them. We’re extremely proud to be working alongside Creative Assembly and their CSR team - both Joanna Green and Emma Smith are deeply passionate about making our industry a brighter and better place - and we can’t wait to get started helping them in that mission.”
Throughout the next year, Into Games will be supporting some of Creative Assembly’s own Ambassadors through our radical Into Games Champions training - furthering their skills as games educators.
Into Games will also help connect the Legacy Project to a nationwide network of educators and young people, as well as a host of amazing educational projects and initiatives that help connect the dots for careers seekers underrepresented in the industry.
Emma Smith, Head of Talent from Creative Assembly added this about the forging of our partnership:
‘Our partnership with Into Games is a fantastic opportunity for Creative Assembly’s Legacy Project. Our missions align so closely that by combining forces we will be able to make a greater impact: supporting more teachers, parents as well as students, to improve understanding of the games industry and see those students armed with the right skills for the future.’
Finally, Creative Assembly and Into Games will collaborate throughout the year to bring our combined knowledge of the games sector to parents, carers and guardians across the UK - to encourage them to support young people to pursue their dreams of a career in the games industry.
Keep an eye out on our social media for more information on our collaborative industry, education, and parent events over the coming months, where we’ll be working closely with the folks at Creative Assembly!
