Evolution Studios, which released PS4 exclusive racing sim DriveClub in October last year, has reportedly let go of 55 employees this past Friday. Eurogamer was informed of the numbers from various sources after the decision was made.

Sony offered a statement and essentially said, “We will be looking to relocate team members throughout the studios, but unfortunately some redundancies will be necessary and in those cases we will assist staff in any way we can.”

The studio hasn’t exactly had the best trajectory in the best two years. After DriveClub was delayed in late 2013, it was revealed that Sony was going back to the drawing board in early 2014. When DriveClub finally released in October 2014, it suffered from various online and server issues which caused the free PS Plus Edition of the game to be delayed till day.

We’ll update you on Evolution Studios’ condition over the coming months but in the meantime, we wish all employees suffering from redundancy the best in their future endeavours.

      Studio staff reduction is common when a project is completed. Same thing happened to Sucker Punch last August and Rare this time last year.

      Keep up the victim complex. 🙂

      Contractors are let go when a project is completed. Not half a studio after a commercial flop, loser :^)
