Guerrilla Games to nearly double its staff with planned office move

CEO Hermen Hulst wants to shorten production time to three years

PlayStation first-party developer Guerrilla Games is set to move into a new office, paving the way to nearly double its staff.

Currently with 250 permanent employees, the Horizon Zero Dawn developer says it wants to expand to 400 people, allowing it to make games faster.

"We have worked at Horizon for six and a half years, which is exceptional: we want to release games in the two or three years, both new titles and games based on existing titles," CEO Hermen Hulst told Dutch publication Het Parool.

Although it has taken some time to find a location to accommodate Hulst's planned expansion, the Amsterdam-based studio will be remaining in the city at a new 7,300 square meters space in the Telegraaf complex -- a former newspaper printing press -- 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. "

The sizable expansion comes after Sony closed Guerilla Games' Cambridge studio in January last year.
