Sony Congratulates Nintendo on Switch launch

Guerrilla Cambridge is being shut down


Sony has made the decision to shut down their Guerrilla Cambridge Studio. A portion of their statement follows:

“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.”

Sony has also stated that they will work hard to try and relocate staff to other projects. I wish the best of luck to those now looking for a job.

Layoffs hit Sony London


Sony London has announced that a significant number of layoffs have taken place at the studio. Work on their latest game, London Heist, will continue. You can read Sony's full statement below:

"London Studio have done a great job in leading the way in VR development, and as their first project nears completion it is time to plan for the next VR project. The team will take all their learnings and experience as they move forward, however in order to achieve its ambitious goals, the Studio will need to restructure around the needs of the new projects.

Unfortunately, there will be a number of compulsory redundancies within the London Studio. We accept that this will mean that we risk losing high calibre staff whose projects have reached completion and where possible, we will try to reallocate people to new projects currently being nurtured.

If appropriate opportunities are not possible within the company, we will assist staff in any way we can, including speaking with local employers and with other Development companies.

The London Studio has been an important part of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios for over 15 years, and will continue to deliver ground breaking work and innovative titles."
