Polish developer and publisher CI Games has announced plans to cut approximately 10% of its workforce.
“To preserve business strength and stability, CI Games has made the tough but necessary decision to implement a targeted round of redundancies, affecting approximately 10% of employees across the company,” he said.
“We would like to thank each of them for the part they’ve played during their time with us. Further business optimisations are being made to the organisation’s pipelines and processes.”
According to GI.biz’s sources, employees at Lords of the Fallen developer Hexworks and Sniper Ghost Warrior studio Underdog have been affected by the layoffs.
They also claimed that CI Games’ marketing department has been hit particularly hard by the cuts, with most of the team made redundant.
Job losses across the games industry were widespread in 2023, and things look set to be even worse this year.
Around 3,000 jobs are estimated to have been lost so far in 2024, compared to 10,500 in total last year.
