Playstation first-party developer Guerrilla Games is looking double its staff and move into a new office.
GamesIndustry.biz reports that the studio currently has 250 developers and aims to expand to 400. A move like this could help them develop games faster.
CEO Herman Hulst told Het Parool “we have worked at Horizon for six and a half years, which is exceptional: we want to release games in two or three years, both new titles, and games based on existing titles”.
Guerrilla Games, an Amsterdam-based studio, will move into a new 7,300 square meter building early next year. “I’ve been looking for room for growth for three or four years, said Hulst. But that is hardly possible in Amsterdam, which will be the base for Guerrilla.”
“We are going to put everything to our will. For ten years, we do not have to worry about our accommodation anymore, the idea is that we will never go out here again.”
Every since Horizon: Zero Dawn came out last year, the developer has seen tremendous success. It sold over seven million copies by its first anniversary in February and has gone on to win several awards. It won the WGA’s award for best video game writing and the BAFTA for the best original property. Additionally, it was up for game of the year at the Game Awards in December among other major outlets.
Guerrilla released the Frozen Wilds DLC for Horizon back in November and it remains to be seen what they’re working on next. With the developer expanding their team, it looks like we won’t have to wait another six and a half years to see what’s next.
