Studios flock to capture RTW staff

SCEE has sent a team of nine artists, programmers, designers and recruiters to the Apex hotel in Dundee to conduct interviews with affected staff at Realtime Worlds.

Over 150 staff at APB studio Realtime Worlds have been made redundant, the firm’s new administrator confirmed yesterday.

Along with Blitz, The Creative Assembly and Activision, SCEE has become part on a concerted effort on behalf of the European development community to help those who have lost their jobs in the recent spate of redundancies at the struggling studio.

The Sony interviews will take place all day tomorrow, Friday August 20, for positions at Sony’s London Studio, Cambridge Studio, Home Group, Online Technology Group, Advanced Technology Group, SCEE R&D, Evolution, Media Molecule and Guerrilla Games.

A statement received by MCV has confirmed that Codemasters has joined the chasing pack.

"Codemasters has been in contact with the senior management and administrators looking after Realtime and has organised a recruitment event on Tuesday and Wednesday the 24th-25th August," it reads. "They are looking to expand all of their UK based studios and have over 150 open vacancies."
