Jobs lost at Thief dev Eidos Montreal

Eidos Montreal has let go of a significant number of development staff just one week after shipping its stealth action reboot Thief.

Thief was met with mixed reviews when it arrived last week. The studio’s parent company Square Enix today confirmed toKotakuthat more than 20 staff have been made redundant.

Yes it is true we’ve let 27 people go today," it said. "Unfortunately it’s something that every major studio has to do sometimes in order to ensure you have the right set up for current and future projects."

Develop has more details.
