Independent game development company Stray Kite Studios is moving their headquarters from Richardson to Plano.

Stray Kite Studios, an independent video game developer founded by industry veterans with credits from industry franchises including Borderlands, Bioshock, Age of Empires and Destiny, recently moved its corporate headquarters from Richardson to Plano.

Stray Kite Studios LLC started in April 2018 with just two employees. Now, the company has a growing 32-person team.

“We are excited to choose Plano as our future home as the city offers a plethora of opportunities that also align with many of our company values such as passion, camaraderie, and growth,” Kyle Stephenson, director of community for Stray Kite Studios said. “Through this, we can create a state-of-the-art facility that is designed to be high-tech, fun, and inspiring, with dedicated areas for collaboration, brainstorming, and gaming.”

In the past five years, Stray Kite has worked on partnerships with Gearbox Entertainment and Epic Games to work on games Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep and Fortnite Creative

Stray Kite’s new headquarters will be in the Village 121 development near State Highway 121 and Preston Rd and across the highway from Stonebriar Mall at the Bridges.

“We foresee our studio space and the City of Plano as a hub for innovation that will continue to drive growth and creativity within the North Texas community,” Stephenson said. “This, along with it being central to our employees for an easy commute, great amenities, fantastic restaurant scene, and vibrant new developments nearby, Plano was the perfect landing spot for the future of Stray Kite Studios.”
