Sony has announced that it is to close Guerrilla Cambridge, a branch of Guerrilla Games who recently made PlayStation VR game RIGS: Mechanized Combat League.
The move comes as part of Sony’s restructuring of its European operations.
In order to deliver on our strategic objectives, it is necessary to make some changes to the European studios structure.
The studio has gone through a few names, previously known as SCEE Cambridge, it has been developing games for the last 19 years. While the news is bleak for those affected, Sony said that it will do its best to help find jobs for those affected.
A company statement reads
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 wish everyone affected by the decision all the best in their future endeavours.
