When Sony announced Firesprite Studios would join the first-party family and the newest addition to PlayStation Studios, they were already adding a studio with a very large number of employees, even larger than some of their studios combined, and now it looks like fire blade will continue to grow.
fire blade employed about 250 people before the Sony takeover, and barring news of mass layoffs or reshuffles, they are poised to grow to nearly 300 developers with the 40 new positions they are currently hiring for.
We know that as a leading studio they will be working on multiple projects, with a likely focus on VR as they will reportedly be working on a VR game set in the world of Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West.
We’ll keep an eye out for more information as it becomes available, although we probably won’t hear much about it fire blade some time, maybe not even until Sony is finally ready to show PSVR 2.
