Codemasters Faces Layoffs

Codemasters is undergoing a consultancy that could result in layoffs, reports GamesIndustry International, saying that cuts would center on the company's digital and publishing efforts. They say a "strong source" tells them about 80 out of 500 positions may be cut, mostly from Codemasters' Southam studio responsible for racing games. They also have an official comment: "As the Company realigns its operations to focus on areas of increased strategic importance and decrease resources in areas that are not delivering value for the business, the Company has proposed the restructure of certain aspects within its digital development and publishing units in line with future product strategy," reads the official statement. "As a result of the proposed restructure, the Company has therefore entered into a period of collective consultation with the affected employees. The restructure is not company-wide and is not anticipated to impact the development of its core console and PC titles such as GRID 2 or its annual FORMULA ONE title."
