Developer People Can Fly recently announced the development of a new original AAA title planned for release on next-generation consoles, streaming platforms, and PC. The new project will be led by People Can Fly’s New York studio which plans to hire dozens of new staff over the next year.
For those unfamiliar with People Can Fly, it was established in 2002, and is currently developing Outriders with Square Enix, set for release later this year, it is also known for the blockbuster Bulletstorm titles as well as co-developing several titles in the Gears of War series.
PCF’s Future Growth
The development studio will work hand-in-hand with its sister studios in Warsaw, Rzeszow, and Newcastle to build a highly ambitious, groundbreaking action-adventure title. To match the scale of the new project, People Can Fly will grow its New York studio over the next 12-18 months and additionally open a new startup studio in Montreal.
Sebastian Wojciechowski, CEO at People Can Fly and Roland Lesterlin, Creative Director at People Can Fly had the following statements:
“There is electricity in the air at People Can Fly. Last year we announced the opening of our New York studio and revealed Outriders for the first time. Today we have surpassed 250 staff and are excited to announce the next chapter in the development of our company. Our intention from the beginning has been to expand People Can Fly into a multi-project studio and continue to build a global presence for our brand. We are marking this unique moment with the presentation of PCF’s refreshed visual identity. With the launch of the next-generation consoles later this year, we are incredibly excited about the future of People Can Fly and the games industry as a whole.”
“It’s rare to ever get the chance to work on an original AAA game in today’s world, never mind being part of the origination process. We’re looking for brilliant and curious people to help us shape the vision of this incredible new world we’re building.”
We’re still unsure of the nature of this future title, but it’s safe to say we’ll know more about it soon enough. People Can Fly is also currently hiring for a variety of roles, in all locations. For more information and to view all available positions, visit here.
