A number of jobs are on the line at UK developer and publisher Codemasters.

Eurogamer claims to have word from “sources close to the studio” that 50 jobs are being reviewed with 30+ of these expected to be lost at the close of a 30 day consultation period.

These include design and art jobs in the Grid and Dirt teams, although the team working on next-gen title F1 2015 is said to be unaffected.

Eurogamer also claims that Codemasters was planning on a Steam Early Access release for a new Dirt game next month, but issues securing car licenses mean this is now unlikely and the team has now been downsized.

Codemasters has confirmed the consultation period to Develop's sister publication MCV but not specified the report’s claims.

MCV has the full story.
