007 Legends Dev Hit by Redundancies
UK developer Eurocom is to be hit by wide-ranging redundancies today, a statement has confirmed.
The studio, which is best known for its work on 007 Legends and GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, will be reduced from 150 developers to just 50 by the end of the day, according to a statement from studio director Hugh Binns.
“Eurocom are undertaking a restructuring which I regret to say has meant we’ve made the majority of our workforce redundant today,” he said. “This includes many very experienced, talented and highly skilled employees, and we’d like to thank them all for your hard work and efforts.
“We’ve fought to try and save as many jobs as possible, but the steep decline in demand for console games, culminating in a number of console projects falling through in the last week, left us with no option.
