As creative people, you want to expand and challenge yourself. Internally, at Guerrilla, they said look, we’re ready to do something different, we feel confident in our skills. We get launch titles out for consoles and technologically and artistically we’ve always excelled.
It really was that kind of moment – we’re ready to do something different and we feel confident enough, we don’t want people to feel like they have to go to other studios to do more challenging work.
