Guerrilla Cambridge Closes Doors
12 January, 2017
News reports that Sony is closing the Cambridge branch of Guerrilla Games (MediEvil, Primal, Ghosthunter, Killzone Mercenary). All employees laid off. Guerrilla Games Amsterdam, which is working on Horizon: Zero Dawn and the Killzone, will continue to operate and will not be affected. This information was confirmed by Sony, regretting ‘the compulsory redundancies’.

So why did they decide to close the studio? The management reviewed all the current PlayStation projects and resources, concluding that “in order to deliver on our strategic objectives, it is necessary to make some changes to the European studios structure”. If possible developers will be reallocated onto other projects. Sony will also help them to land jobs at local studios, where possible. Cambridge is sprt of a hub for UK deveopers. There’s Frontier, Ninja Theory, Jagex. We’re sure that the talented artists and game developers from this team will find new jobs!

Whilst we accept that this decision will mean that we risk losing high calibre staff, by focusing on other Studios with exciting new projects in development, (including continued work on PlayStation VR), we believe we will be in a stronger position going forward and able to offer the best possible content of the highest quality to our players. This decision should not take anything away from the incredible games and services that Guerrilla Cambridge has delivered.

We invite all the developers from Guerrilla Cambridge to submit their contacts! We’d love to talk with you about your work, your achievements and help to put your name out there.
