As many as 19 staff at Newcastle-based Ubisoft Reflections could be leaving the firm as part of a wider restructuring, Ubisoft has confirmed.
This number includes several members of the studio's senior development team.
According to a Develop source at the company, currently working on Driver: San Francisco, staff were called into an office last Tuesday and informed of the situation.
We weren't given names, but they took some people into a separate office afterwards, gave them a letter and took them out of the building. That was it,” the source said.
