Guerrilla Cambrige Officially Closed Sony Confirms

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Sony has confirmed the closure for Guerrilla Cambridge studios. According to Games Industry Biz the shutdown to them was “regrettable”. The decision for closing the studio down comes from a review of all current PlayStation projects and resources, stating “in order to deliver on our strategic objectives, it is necessary to make some changes to the European studios structure”. Guerrilla Cambridge recent most noticeable game titles were Killzone Mercenary for the PlayStation Vita and RIGS: Mechanical Combat League for the PlayStation VR. As for the parent studio Guerrilla Games, the developers for Horizon: Zero Dawn and the Killzone series, no one was affected by 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”.

In my opinion: This is truly a sad turn of events for one of Sony Interactive Entertainment studios. Personally Guerrilla Cambridge was a studio with extremely talented individuals and had the capability to deliver great experiences for gamers. RIGS Mechanical Combat League set the bar for PSVR games, showing that full scaled, fast moving, and high impact games does have a place in Virtual Reality. I hope they continue to support RIGS: Mechanical Combat League not just on a causal player level, but also on a competitive level. So much untapped potential waiting to be unleashed.
