Sony confirms UK layoffs in the UK affecting Evolution, Guerilla Cambridge and SCE London. An undisclosed number of people have been affected due to an internal review of “all current projects”.
“Regular reviews take place throughout SCE Worldwide Studios, ensuring that the resources that we have in such a competitive business can create and produce high quality, innovative and commercially viable projects,” Sony’s statement reads.
Evolution had been working on PlayStation 4 racer, Driveclub which was intended to be a launch title but missed the consoles release. It is unknown what Guerilla Cambridge and SCE London are currently working on.
These UK based changes come on the back of a wave of redundancies at Sony Santa Monica last month after an unannounced new IP was cancelled.
