Racing game company Codemasters announces restructuring, layoffs

Racing game specialist Codemasters today announced layoffs at the company, as it looks to realign and remove its operations that are no longer delivering value.

In a statement to Gamasutra, the UK-based company noted that the proposed restructure is not company-wise, and will therefore not affect certain titles that are in development, such as GRID 2 and its F1 racing series.

Codemasters did not state how many employees will be affected by the move, simply noting that it has "entered into a period of collective consultation with the affected employees." Eurogamer reports that around 80 people may have been affected.

The news follows a troubling 2012 for the company, including a period in which it claims it accidentally overpaid laid off staffers.

Last April the company said that it was dropping development on all non-racing titles and focusing solely on racing games, while it later revealed an attempt to mix arcade gameplay in with its realistic F1 series.
