Former Guerrilla Cambridge developers join VR outfit Virtual Arts

Following the death of Guerrilla in January this year, the Virtual Arts founders were left with a wealth of talent on their doorstep, and wound up hiring some of those affected by the closure.

A group of Guerrilla Cambridge developers have been hired by fledgling VR studio, Virtual Arts. 

The company was formed in December 2016 by Nizar Romdan and Doug Day, who previously held executive positions at leading mobile tech manufacturer, ARM. 

Following the death of Guerrilla in January this year, Romdan and Day found themselves with a wealth of talent on their doorstep, and wound up hiring some of those affected by the closure.

As many of you will likely recall, Guerrilla Cambridge has already proven itself as a VR developer after working on PlayStation VR launch title, RIGS: Mechanized Combat League

It's experience that'll no doubt help Virtual Arts realize its long term ambition of becoming a major player in the world of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality. 

"There will soon be a world where virtual reality headsets are as readily available and as easily disposable as coffee cup holders," commented Virtual Arts CEO Nizar Romdan.

"The devices of today with their current performance capabilities will be the dominant devices. The content being delivered to these devices will come from Virtual Arts and the companies using Virtual Arts’ unique technology platform to create content."
