Guerrilla Games Looking to Expand, Decrease Development Time

The developers behind one of 2017’s highlight games, Horizon: Zero Dawn, is looking for bigger space and a new studio, according to an article written in the Dutch Het Parool. Guerrilla appear to be setting their sights on leasing five floors of the old Telegraaf complex situated within the heart of the Dutch capital, Amsterdam.

On top of this, the studio is — as a result — hoping to expand from their now-250 strong team to what it hopes could be at least 400 permanent employees. But there’s a more critical reason too as to why the studio is looking to expand and as soon as possible as Guerrilla Games CEO Hermen Hulst explains: “We have worked at Horizon for 6.5 years, which is exceptional: we want to release games…in two or three years, both new titles and games based on existing titles.”

You’ll recall that Horizon: Zero Dawn originally debuted at Sony’s press conference at E3 2015 and after an expanded look at its gameplay the following year, the game eventually launched for PS4 in the back-end of February of last year to rather rapturous acclaim — a little over eighteen months from reveal to release, as it should be.
