Sony closing Guerrilla Cambridge studio

RIGS developers are no more.

Guerrilla Cambridge

Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios will shut down its Guerrilla Cambridge studio and lay of all employees, the company announced.

In a statement, Sony said it will “where possible… try to reallocate people onto other projects” and assist staff by speaking to local developers about recruitment prospects.

The statement adds, “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.”

Guerrilla Cambridge, previously known as SCE Cambridge Studio, has been running for 19 years and most recently produced PlayStation VR launch title RIGS: Mechanized Combat League. It’s previously worked on the MediEvil franchise, Primal, Ghosthunter, and Killzone: Mercenary.

It should be noted that Guerrilla Cambridge is separate from Guerrilla Games, the studio working on Horizon: Zero Dawn and that created the Killzone franchise.
