505 Games celebrates its 15th anniversary


505 Games is celebrating a huge milestone today as it is our 15th anniversary! We want to take this opportunity to celebrate this great achievement with the Xbox community and thank our amazing partners at Microsoft for their support over the years.

Sometimes it is good to stop and take a moment to reflect on the good times, which fortunately have been many. It seems almost unrealistic to think that 505 Games started as a 3-person team in 2006 and now in 2021 it has grown into a 250-person team, publishing over 200 titles in this time! Many of which have made their way onto Xbox consoles over the years.

Xbox has been a big part of our journey to reaching 15 years. Since 2006, we’ve released titles on Xbox 360, then Xbox One, and now Xbox Series X | S.

To mark this important milestone, we celebrate it in several ways:

505 Games recommends you

We recently asked our team at 505 Games what their favorite titles were from the last 15 years and these were some of their responses:

“As a lover of single player narrative and action adventure games, Control I really love it, as it fulfills many of the elements that I look for in a game. The story and moment-by-moment action is simply magnificent and when combined with the world that Remedy created, it is amazing. If you haven’t played this title yet, you’re missing it! ”. – James Cartlidge, Brand Community Manager.

“Definitely, Abzu. I love games that capture anyone’s attention: sitting quietly underwater and watching the fish swim is something my two-and-a-half-year-old niece loves! “ – Kyle Beams, director of business development.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is the game that originally drew me to 505 Games. Since then, I have enjoyed many of our games, such as: Terraria, Control, Ghostrunner, Portal Knights and Abzu“. – Mike Motoda, Senior Director of Production Services.

“If I had to choose only one title, it would be Portal Knights, since this was the first game I worked on at 505 Games and the one in which I have spent the most time, not only as part of my job, but also as a player ”. – Thomas Simpson, Global Brand Manager

“It’s hard to choose one, but if I had to, it would be Assetto Corsa Ultimate Edition“. – Kota Sugawara, CEO of 505 Games Japan.

On behalf of the entire community team, we want to express our gratitude to the Xbox community. We are immensely grateful for your support! We hope to continue counting on your participation and that you continue to enjoy our games, as it means a lot to everyone at 505 Games.
