NASCAR and Ferrari Challenge developer Eutechnyx has been hit by a round of layoffs that has seen 12 employees lose their jobs.
A source close to the matter has told Develop that the redunancies have affected staff across a range of disciplines including QA, art and producer roles. Some staff have also been loaned to nearby Ubisoft-owned studio Reflections.
Develop has also learned that Eutechnyx closed its London office in June last year, which had housed as little as five staff, who were then offered employment in Gateshead following the closure.
Speaking on the matter, the studio's CEO Darren Jobling said it was unfortunate the studio had to make staff redundant, but stressed last week's layoffs represented less that ten per cent of the company's total headcount.
He said Eutechnyx currently employs 131 staff, with other sub-contractors also working at the company.
