Firesprite’s office unit at Vanilla Factory covers 2,295 sq ft, according to the building’s floor plan information.
However, the company has now leased a four-building cluster in Liverpool’s Duke Street, which will give it 50,000 sq ft of space.
The new letting, which is only a three-minute walk from the current Firesprite offices, consists of four buildings, including a grade-two building that used to be Liverpool’s public library.
Invest Liverpool says the lease, which lasts until 2032, is the largest letting in Liverpool in three years.
The move to significantly larger accommodation will help Firesprite handle the numerous projects it’s currently working on.
The studio is working alongside Guerrilla Games on PlayStation VR 2 title Horizon: Call of the Mountain, and VGC understands it has also taken over development of the as-yet unannounced Twisted Metal reboot.
Recent job listings on the studio’s website also show that it’s working on a “AAA narrative driven horror-adventure game in Unreal 5“.
Well say what you will, PlayStation is clearly investing in Firesprite. For such a new studio they are actually working on quite a lot of projects at once as well.
