Guerrilla Cambridge (not to confused with Guerrilla Games, Sony’s Amsterdam-based studio) has been officially closed down by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
Having developed games like Killzone: Mercenary, RIGS and the MediEvil series, the studio has been active within the gaming industry for almost 20 years, coming to an end as the studio’s 80 employees will be laid off following the closure, though the company has stated that it’ll attempt to relocate employees to different projects/studios where possible.
Sony made the following statement regarding the closure:
“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.”
