Sony closes studio after 19 years

Sony closes studio after 19 years

Sony have closed game studio Guerrilla Games Cambridge, the studio behind games like Medieval and most recently R.I.G.s for PlayStation VR.

The news initially came out of Gamesindustry.biz  who then contacted Sony who confirmed the new on Thursday morning.

Sony commented: “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 has been a result of a review of all Sony First Party Studios and Sony have said that no other European offices will be affected.

My thoughts go out to all of those affected and hope they all land on their feet really soon.
