It's always sad when we have to report on a studio closure, but it's even worse when it's a developer that, over the last 19 years, has clearly shown it has real talent. Game Industry reports that Sony is going to shutter Guerrilla Cambridge, the UK branch of Killzone and Horizon: Zero Dawn developer Guerrilla Games.

The studio's most recent release was RIGS: Mechanized Combat League for PlayStation VR. It was also behind Vita exclusive Killzone: Mercenary, and back when it was simply called Sony Cambridge Studio, it crafted LittleBigPlanet on PSP, and, perhaps most notably, MediEvil and MediEvil 2 on the original PlayStation. For years, rumours have been circling that MediEvil would be making a comeback, but that obviously looks even more unlikely now.

So, why's the developer closing its doors? According to Sony, it's to do with the restructuring of its European studios, although at this point, no other development teams have been impacted. "This decision should not take anything away from the incredible games and services that Guerrilla Cambridge has delivered," Sony states.

Sadly, all of Guerrilla Cambridge's employees will be laid off, although Sony has said that where possible, it will "try to reallocate people onto other projects". Naturally, we wish the best of luck to all of those affected by the closure.
