People Can Fly, the studio behind Outriders, Bulletstorm, and Gears of War: Judgment, is currently working on a new AAA unannounced project for PC, next-gen consoles, and streaming platforms.
The new original IP will require the New York studio to hire dozens of new staff over the next year. Along with the growth in New York, People Can Fly intends on opening a new startup studio in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Led by Studio Head, David Grijns, and Creative Director, Roland Lesterlin, People Can Fly New York will work hand-in-hand with its sister studios in Warsaw, Rzeszow, and Newcastle to build a highly ambitious, groundbreaking action-adventure title that takes the studio nearly 20 years of development expertise in a new direction.
Sebastian Wojciechowski, CEO at People Can Fly, said:
“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.”
Roland Lesterlin, Creative Director at People Can Fly New York. added:
“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.”
