Hudson is enacting previous plans to terminate its US studio, according to reports.
The Bomberman developer is said has begun a voluntary redundancy program, with as many as forty staff expected to apply.
But a report from news site Andriasang does not detail if there are enough voluntary redundancy placements for all staff.
The fate of Hudson’s San Mateo office was sealed in a shareholder meeting, Andriasang claims, where it was agreed that Hudson will now be Konami property.
Hudson’s Japanese arm will is expected to now develop social games for Konami.
