Splash Damage Facing Layoffs – Insider Gaming

Splash Damage is the next studio to be facing layoffs in the gaming industry. The news of potential layoffs came as social media posts on the matter began to appear.

As far as the number of people being let go, the studio told GamesIndustry.biz that it is limited to “a small number of roles”. What it’s meant by a small number remains to be seen.

“Following a recent business review, we have reached a point where we must adapt our structure to better suit the needs of our current and future games,” the statement to GI Biz reads. “Despite every effort to avoid it, this unfortunately means that a small number of roles across the studio are potentially at risk of redundancy.

“These roles are predominantly on the operations side of the business, with our development teams remaining largely unaffected. All games—both announced and unannounced—remain in development.”

Splash Damage is currently working on Transformers: Reactivate. The studio worked on the multiplayer aspects of Gears of War 4 and Gears 5 as well as the PC version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

As of publishing, nearly 11,000 people have lost their jobs in the gaming industry that we know of.
