According to this Joystiq report, Silicon Knights has laid off 26 staff today as the studio reshuffled its size in preparation for “several new and exciting” projects.

Before the downsize, the company totalled just over 180 employees.

“Silicon Knights is currently working on several new and exciting games that will be announced to the public in the coming months,” said company boss Denis Dyack.

“In addition to those projects, Silicon Knights continues to develop and promote other new and original ideas, which will become the innovative games of tomorrow.

“These 26 individuals are hard-working and valued team members that we hope to bring back as we ramp up on our future projects.”

    Always sucks to have to lay off people. Sucks more for the people laid off of course.
