As a result, People Can Fly--especially the New York division--is planning to hire dozens of new staff over the next year. In fact, the studio clarified that the New York team will grow over the next 12-18 months in addition to opening a new "startup studio" in Montreal.

"There is electricity in the air at People Can Fly," studio head Sebastian Wojciechowski said. "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. 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."

People Can Fly's upcoming title--Outriders, a third-person, cover-based shooter with RPG elements--is expected to launch later this year on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. The studio was previously owned by Epic Games and partnered with the company on the first three Gears of War entries, as well as 2013's Gears of War: Judgment.
