Eidos: Re-structuring going very well

Eidos creative director Ian Livingstone

has told Edge

that the publishers’ re-structuring program is ‘going very well’ after the beleaguered publisher revealed that it would be

cutting 25 per cent of its workforce and moving to a ‘studio-led’ structure.

The publisher has been releatively quiet since the announcement was made back in Febraury as it contineus to focus on its ‘cornerstone franchises’

The restructuring is going very well,” said Livingstone. We have been very upfront about what we are as a business and where we are going. We have put in place a studio-led and product-centric operation and everybody is now happily on board.”

Studio-led means that operationally we have moved publishing responsibilities such as brand, PR and marketing into our key studios.

"This means bringing people closer to games so that the whole team offering can be creatively driven. Having a focused team based around our cornerstone franchises means one team based in the same office, country and time zone so that they can explore every opportunity directly alongside the game’s development.”
