Ninja Theory was formed in Cambridge England, in November of 2004, by Nina Kristensen (Chief Development Ninja), Mike Ball (Chief Technology Ninja), Tameem Antoniadis (Chief Design Ninja) and Non-Executive Ninja, Jez San OBE. Ninja Theory was formerly known as Just Add Monsters Ltd. and was the team behind Kung Fu Chaos. Ninja Theory believes in the potential of next-generation gaming to elevate games into a true artistic entertainment medium to rival film, theatre and literature. As such Ninja Theory were one of the first game development studios in the world to focus exclusively on next generation gaming. Its first project was Heavenly Sword for Sony's PlayStation 3.
There are numerous companies in the industry, and their names change like the weather. The information above is not particular about the finer details. Acquisitions are common, so companies with no recent listings may still be developing games under a new name. For example, DMA Design currently has a Rockstar name.
