After Stainton Enterprises's assets were transferred to CyMedia around 2018, Slik Games announced to spin off. In 2019, Slik Games South and Slik Games UK announced to merge to form a new semi-autonomous studio, a different direction from the support studio statuses both studios held previously.
In January 2020, Slik Games unveiled Slik Immersive, a studio specializing in virtual reality and augmented reality experiences, with their first game being Neon: Haywire. By the time of the announcement, they moved headquarters to Austin, Texas, only around 75 miles away from their original studio, and hired former employees of Edge of Reality and Terminal Reality, including Mark Randel.
They signed a publishing deal with Sony Interactive Entertainment for two original games and the PS4/PS5 ports of Neon: Haywire, and also are helping Cloud Imperium Games in the development of Star Citizen and its single player campaign Squadron 42. They also bought out the offices of CCP Games Atlanta and re-hired the employees, and established a new studio in China to work on an unannounced game.
