People Can Fly, the Polish game developer that recently released Outriders, is expanding its development footprint. The company has acquired Phosphor Games and is creating a new studio called People Can Fly Chicago, LLC.
Phosphor Games was founded in 2009 and is described as a “mid-size highly experienced development team.” The studio, which makes games using the Unreal Engine, has released a handful of VR games such as The Brookhaven Experiment along with enterprise games like Fire Rescue VR to help firefighters train. The studio also worked with Ford on its Future of Mobility VR experience.
“We are very excited to be joining People Can Fly to open a brand new Triple-A studio, People Can Fly Chicago. Our goal is to strengthen PCF’s presence in the US and help build People Can Fly as a global brand,” Phosphor CEO Justin Corcoran said.
