Devlopers announce layoffs for Codemasters

It’s disappointing for the fans yet again as the developer announces a layoff within their various studios and how it affects their upcoming projects. Eurogamer reported that the developer would be reviewing 50 employees and supposedly the GRID and DiRt are the worst affected ones and not just that, it is also being said that the release of DiRt would be delayed further and would not be released at the estimated time.

A spokesperson from Eurogamer had the following to say:

“As Codemasters continues its programme of strategic realignment in line with market changes, the company has reviewed its current structures to focus on areas of increased importance and decrease resources in areas where work requirements have been reduced. As a result of this review, a small number of roles have been proposed as being at risk of redundancy. Those in potentially affected roles are now involved in a consultation period to discuss the proposal. The proposal does not affect the on-going production of titles in development and no projects have been cancelled as a result of the proposal.”

We hope that they have a speedy recovery from this and also advise their fans to keep their fingers crossed and not get too disheartened.
