NASCAR 14

Developer of the upcoming racing sim NASCAR 14, Eutechnyx, has announced that it has laid off 12 of its employees as part of some restructuring work going on. Some of these 12 staff members have been loaned to Ubisoft studio Reflections.

Eutechnyx also closed its London offices, which contained five people, in June last year, but with 131 current employees and other sub-contractors working for the company, this all represents less than ten per cent of the number of people the company employes.

“On Friday, we made unfortunately 12 people redundant,” said Eutechnyx CEO Darren Jobling. “It was part of restructuring at the company.

“We’ve made no bones about the fact we wanted to move away from being a work-for-hire developer on consoles to publishing our own titles,” Jobling added, “so it’s highly regrettable that we did have to make 12 people redundant.”

Stay tuned for further updates on the story as more info comes our way.
