Codemasters Layoffs Could Lead to Dirt 4 Delay
As many as 50 positions up for redundancy.
Codemasters’ unannounced Dirt sequel may face some issues in light of the company’s reported redundancies. According to Eurogamer, 30 employees will be let go but as many as 50 jobs are being considered for redundancy.
These could happen at Codemasters Warwickshire where Dirt 4 is apparently in development and will likely delay the game’s release in the process.
Though it hasn’t confirmed the number, it has confirmed the risk. “As Codemasters continues its program of strategic realignment in line with market changes, the company has reviewed its current structures to focus on areas of increased importance and decrease resources in areas where work requirements have been reduced.
“As a result of this review, a small number of roles have been proposed as being at risk of redundancy. Those in potentially affected roles are now involved in a consultation period to discuss the proposal. The proposal does not affect the ongoing production of titles in development and no projects have been cancelled as a result of the proposal.”
Stay tuned for more information on the lay-offs.
