Bigbig Studios was a video game developer. It was founded in 2001 by a core team of four former Codemasters employees.[1] The company was set up with the help of parent company Evolution Studios. It was based in Leamington Spa in the UK.[2]

Bigbig Studios and Evolution Studios were both acquired by Sony Computer Entertainment in September 2007,[3] which was confirmed in an interview and Bigbig Studios were assigned to work exclusively for the portable PlayStation products with the releases of the Pursuit Force games,[4] and MotorStorm: Arctic Edge for the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 2 plus Little Deviants for the PlayStation Vita[citation needed]

On 10 January 2012, Sony confirmed that it would close Bigbig Studios.[5]
