Guerrilla Cambridge was a video game developer and studio that was founded by Sony in 1977, the studio had a hand in creating games such as MediEvil and Little Big Planet. Recently, it was announced that Sony has closed the company. A spokeswoman for Sony said that around 50 people had been employed at the studio.

The statement released by Sony has been provided below.

“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… 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.”

Previously, Sony had also closed down studios such as their Evolution Studio and Studio Liverpool. However, Sony has also opened a studio in Manchester, and continues to operate studios in London.

The last game Guerrilla Cambridge released was Rigs: Mechanized Combat League, a game designed for Playstation’s virtual reality headset.
