"It is sad that we are forced to make staff cutbacks," said Mikael Nermark, CEO of Starbreeze, "But we have to reduce staff after the final delivery of Syndicate."
The Swedish developer is currently working on a remake of the classic Bullfrog title Syndicate, recasting the isometric real time tactical game as a four player cooperative first person shooter.
25 employees will be terminated from the studio once the final product is delivered to EA.
Peter Tornquist will resign from his position on the Starbreeze board, with no planned replacement.
Syndicate is due for launch on the 21st of this month.
