Reports signal job losses at Rare

UK studio Rare is at the centre of conflicting accounts of layoffs across its art department.

An individual, said to be an inside studio source, has claimed that Rare's entire art team – apparently 42 staff – have been told their jobs are at risk.

The anonymous source, speaking to Edge, added that affected workers at the Twycross studio have been urged to apply for a job at Rare's other studio in Birmingham.

The individual claimed there are 23 managerial” vacancies at Rare Birmingham looking to be filled.

Microsoft, Rare's owning company, has implied the source's claims are exaggerated, but wouldn't deny them with definitive figures.
