Embracer Group has reportedly made layoffs at 3D Realms and Slipgate Ironworks.
Scott Miller, who founded 3D Realms and now heads up indie publisher Apogee Entertainment, said he’d been told that at least half the developers at the Danish studios were being let go.
“Several sources have told me this bad news… Sorry to hear about another drop of the axe by Embracer Group, this time landing on Danish 3D Realms,” he said on X. “A lot of people, including core devs, will be looking for work asap.”
“More and more sources have told me at least half the company (Slipgate/3DR) is laid off,” he said in a follow-up post. “We’re looking at hiring at least 2-3.”
Embracer, which acquired 3D Realms and Slipgate in 2021, announced in June that it was implementing a restructuring programme which would involve the closure of studios and the cancellation of some projects.
