Improbable - Responding to the coronavirus

20 March 2020

In the interests of safety - of our workers, our partners and our customers - Improbable is taking proactive steps in response to the increasing spread of the novel coronavirus, in line with government advice. 

We do not have any current concerns about Improbable being able to deliver its services - these are precautionary measures to protect our employees and others. Although there may be some changes to schedules or minor delays in response to enquiries as we adjust to the situation, we believe that the technology-focused nature of our business will allow our co-development, game operations and networking services to be delivered without interruption in the current circumstances.

In areas where coronavirus has been identified as a risk, we have instituted working from home for all our employees. 

In the UK, at our headquarters in London, our Improbable Game Studios office in Cambridge and The Multiplayer Guys office in Nottingham, we transitioned fully to working from home at the start of the week commencing March 16. Anyone in a high risk group, or with concerns about their dependents was already able to work from home the previous week, to contain the risk of transmission.

Our offices in the US and Canada, Germany and China are transitioning or have transitioned to working from home, in accordance with government guidelines and our own safety standards.

Regular business travel and face-to-face meetings have been suspended, and our employees are strongly encouraged to think carefully and review government advice before any personal travel.

We are taking this step to protect our employees, and also to seek to contribute to the delay of the spread of the novel coronavirus and COVID-19. 

We will be working and meeting remotely until further notice.

If you are a customer, partner or member of our developer community, and you have further concerns or questions, please feel free to reach out here. We will maintain customer service and our Discord and social channels as normal.
