In case any of our readers can’t view his tweet, or just don’t want to read off an image, we’ve written his full statement down below:
“After 12 years I have left @guerrilla to start something new. Being part of a studio that has achieved amazing things with Killzone, Rigs and Horizon has been fantastic. I have been extremely lucky to have worked with so many talented and great people and have so many memories. Starting up something new is going to be a big adventure that I am excited about.”
The departure is on good terms, as Guerrilla co-founder and managing director Hermen Hulst tweeted out in support of his long-time coworker. “Thank you [Steven] for your huge contribution to Guerrilla over the years,” wrote Hulst. He ended his message by saying, “Best of luck on behalf of all of us. See you soon!”
