Publisher in talks with Newcastle studio's employees about possible redundancies

2K ‘assessing role of Venom’

2K Games has responded to rumours that its only UK studio, Venom Games, is to close – saying that while no final decision has been made, it is indeed considering redundancies at the developer.

In an official statement, a Take-Two representative said: "We are assessing the role of Venom Games in Take-Two’s overall global studio system and are in a consultation with the employees of Venom in relation to possible redundancies at the studio."

"No final decision will be made until after the consultation with employees," it concluded.
