A collective of R&D labs dedicated to
imagining what’s ahead for game development

Laser guided expertise supercharged by technology, focused on client needs - present and future.

The games industry is constantly innovating, from the earliest days of Pong to the vast open- world games of today. How games look, how games are made and what games can do, is constantly evolving, and is doing so at an increasing rate every year. Labs at Keywords Studios wants to contribute to that innovation and help developers and publishers build better games faster and more effectively. To do so, we are calling on everyone in the game industry, our employees, our clients and anyone else, to share how they believe we can build better games. Ideas will be evaluated by our experts across various disciplines and when we believe we can contribute to the solution we will invest time, resources and money into them.
