In early February, Martyn Brown made the shock announcement that he was leaving the studio he founded and ran for 20 years, Team17.

Why? We're not sure. But we do know, now, what he's doing next: working with Sony-commissioned handheld developer Double Eleven.

"I am incredibly chuffed to assist, advise and help inspire Double Eleven, who are hands-down one of the most exciting, driven and highly capable development teams I've had the fortune to meet in years," declared Brown.

"I have absolutely no doubt that Double Eleven will be amongst the UK's most high-profile and successful development studios within a very short space of time."

Double Eleven, started last year by a pair of former Rockstar Leeds employees, made PSP games Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Liberty City Stories and Beaterator.

There's no mention of what Double Eleven and Martyn Brown are making. Could it be games for Sony's Next Generation Portable?
