After the purge of SCE Santa Monica, it’s now the turn of Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games Cambridge and Sony London to face lay-offs. Speaking to Videogamer, a Sony representative stated that quite a few members were let go from each team. The studios in question are currently busy with DriveClub (Evolution Studios), The Deep (Sony London) and Killzone: Mercenary (Guerrilla Games Cambridge).

“Regular reviews take place throughout SCE Worldwide Studios, ensuring that the resources that we have in such a competitive business can create and produce high quality, innovative and commercially viable projects.

“As part of this process, we have reviewed and assessed all current projects and have decided to make some changes to some of our European Studios. As a result of this, there will be a focused restructure within London Studio, Guerrilla Cambridge Studio and Evolution Studio to ensure that the SCE WWS is in the best position to achieve their goals going forward.

“Our first party development studios are key to our creative strategy and we are very excited about the future projects being worked on.”

As for the current status of DriveClub, which was delayed from November 2013 and reportedly went back to the drawing board several weeks ago, the rep said, “development of Driveclub will not be affected.”
