Newsbrief: Eurogamer reports that there have been layoffs at Rare, the British studio which most recently released Kinect Sports Rivals for the Xbox One.

The report does not specify how many employees may have lost their jobs or what inspired the cuts. However, a Microsoft representative did provide Eurogamer with the following statement:

"At Xbox, our goal is to constantly create new fun, social and interactive entertainment experiences. As part of Rare's commitment to this goal, we have made a decision to change our development process and methodology at Rare to best support our future projects, this has led to us reviewing the skills and the makeup of our development teams in our business. Rare continues to invest in our people and future projects."

Gamasutra has reached out to representatives of Rare for confirmation and further comment on what this means for the future of the studio.
