Kuju’s Ian Baverstock’s confirmed that the developer is to make redundancies in the UK and US.

“Kuju has generally adopted a more cautious approach at the start of 2009 in light of market conditions,” said the exec in a statement.

“As a developer with nearly 20 years experience of game development trends, we know how important it is to have the right number of people with the best mix of skills for the scale and nature of our projects.

“Up to ten design or art posts at Zoe Mode are at risk; although total headcount in the studio is expected to remain broadly level at around 150 as roles are opened in other disciplines. There have also been some redundancies in Kuju America, a small number in Chemistry in Sheffield and Kuju’s corporate headquarters in Shalford.”

There’s more on GI.
