Activision confirms UK job losses

Due to market conditions and the ongoing console transition period, positions are at risk in the UK, mainly affecting finance and PR functions, as well all temporary staff.

“Activision is working with each employee affected to ensure the needs of each individual is the priority and so until the consultation process is complete, it's inappropriate to quantify job losses, but we'd like to thank everyone for their patience and dedication at this difficult time,” An Activision spokesperson told MCV.

MCV understands that redundancies are also likely in other European territories.

This development follows recent confirmation by Electronic Arts that it is to shed five per cent of its staff worldwide (MCV Newsflash 2/2), and Atari’s plan to reduce its US headcount (MCV 17/2).
