Lay Offs Hit Lionhead Studios
Microsoft have confirmed that a number of employees at Lionhead Studios are to be made redundant.
The number of employees has not been disclosed. However, it has been confirmed that it will only be no more than 10% of the workforce at the Guildford based studio.
Speaking with GI.biz, here’s a statement from the studio:
“At this time a small number of positions have been identified as at risk of redundancy and the affected employees were notified today. We are working very closely with those people during this difficult time, to help them explore alternative opportunities within Microsoft - including new roles at Microsoft Studios which is growing in the UK and actively hiring across all locations, including Lionhead, Rare, Soho Productions and our recently announced new studio in London.”
We wish all those affected the best of luck in finding a new position.
