14 employees have lost their jobs at developer Airtight Games.
The studio is currently working on Square Enix title Murdered: Souls Suspect. Its previous games include Quantum Conundrum and Dark Void.
"We regret to confirm that we have laid off 14 staff members yesterday afternoon as part of a necessary restructuring," Airtight's Jim Deal told IGN.
"This restructuring is part of the normal ebb and flow of game production. Existing projects are on schedule and Airtight Games is actively seeking partners for exciting upcoming projects."
A Square Enix rep added: “Airtight Games is a valued partner of Square Enix and we hope staff affected find jobs soon. We have been assured Murdered: Soul Suspect’s timeline to launch is unaffected and the core team is continuing to work towards shipping in June.”
