Harmonix welcomes indie studio Proletariat into Cambridge office

Harmonix has carved out a section of its office to house local indie studio Proletariat, the Cambridge-based studio has announced.

Proletariat was founded by former members of Zynga Boston, following Zynga’s closing of the studio in late 2012. The studio was founded by five individuals and has since grown to a dozen staff that boast previous experience working for Harmonix, Insomniac Games, Turbine and EA.

A post on the Harmonix blog reveals the indie studio moved in over this past weekend. Company publicist Nick Chester stressed that there’s no business or development relations between Harmonix and Proletariat for either of the studios’ projects, and that it’s just a case of sharing an office.

Proletariat is currently working on strategy title World Zombination, its debut title due out later this year on Windows PC, Mac, Android and iOS.

Harmonix was in the news less than a month ago, when the studio confirmed it was laying off 37 staff members and transitioning through an executive shakeup.
