ZeniMax lays off 300 staff, report claims

Roughly 300 employees from the Irish branch of ZeniMax Online Studios have apparently lost their jobs.

The Connacht Tribune, a regional newspaper, reports that the firm’s business in Galway, Ireland has essentially been shut down, with the vast majority of full-time and contract employees let go.

The Galway office of ZeniMax served as a European customer services centre. The Tribune’s source suggest that a handful of employees – around half-a-dozen” – have been kept on to keep things ticking over”, and that the office may expand again in line with a future game release.

The Irish office was only opened in early 2014, ahead of the launch of The Elder Scrolls Online.
