Layoffs strike  Driveclub  developer Evolution Studios

Layoffs strike Driveclub developer Evolution Studios

March 19, 2015 | By Alex Wawro




An unspecified number of employees at Evolution Studios will lose their jobs as the venerable U.K.-based developer restructures to focus on maintaining its recently-released Driveclub racing game as a service.

Evolution has a long history of developing well-regarded racing games, but hit a rough patch last year when, after multiple delays, it launched Driveclub with enough technical issues to merit public apologies from PlayStation UK boss Fergal Gara and Sony Worldwide Studios chief Shuhei Yoshida.

Today Sony issued a statement to Eurogamer confirming the layoffs and adding that "Evolution Studios will now focus on DriveClub as a service going forward, in particular, the important launch of the PS Plus Edition. We will be restructuring Evolution Studios to ensure that SCE WWS and in particular, Evolution Studios are in the best position to achieve these goals."

Gamasutra has reached out to Sony representatives for further clarification on exactly how many people will be affected by these cutbacks.

If you or someone you know was affected, you can contact Gamasutra to tell your story confidentially.
