End of the line for Derby office as Oxford HQ is hit by layoffs
Publish date:

UK studio Rebellion has confirmed job cuts at its Oxford base, adding that its Derby studio is now closing.

Back in January the company’s Derby studio entered a consultation process whereby staff were interviewed and formally warned they may face redundancy.

CEO Jason Kingsley explained late in February that no-one has stepped up to buy the Derby outfit as a going concern.

Last week a source told Develop that the offices have now closed, adding that nearly twenty staff have been cut from Rebellion’s Oxford studio.

Today a Rebellion spokesperson confirmed to Develop that the Derby studio is closing. The representative didn’t specify the number of cuts at the Oxford studio, though said a few staff in junior positions had been let go.
