In a statement to GI, following news yesterday that Conflict developer Pivotal Games is to close, Eidos has confirmed that 95 staff are to be sacked whilst only around 10 to 12 artists will remain with the company.
“The number of jobs which will be made redundant at Pivotal Games will be between 93 and 95, not the rumoured 99 which has been mentioned by some websites,” said the company.
“With regards to reports of the remaining staff being made redundant after three months, this is absolutely untrue. The retained artists will be considered part of the ongoing team and structure at Eidos.”
