Sony Computer Entertainment Europe confirmed this morning that it has laid off staffers at three of its largest UK-based studios, including the team that is currently working on Driveclub for PlayStation 4.

Sony told VideoGamer that staff at Evolution Studios (Driveclub), Guerrilla Cambridge (Killzone: Mercenary) and SCE London Studio (Singstar) have been affected by the round of layoffs.

The company noted, "We have reviewed and assessed all current projects and have decided to make some changes to some of our European Studios. As a result of this, there will be a focused restructure within London Studio, Guerrilla Cambridge Studio and Evolution Studio to ensure that the SCE WWS is in the best position to achieve their goals going forward."

And Sony reassured PlayStation 4 owners that "the development of Driveclub will not be affected" by the layoffs. The company did not say how many people have been laid off.
