Brash is to cut 20 staff due to challenging conditions, the firm said yesterday.

Speaking in a statement published by GameDaily, the publisher said:

“Citing the current tough economic landscape, Brash Entertainment has confirmed the company has instituted a strategic cost reduction plan that will see the elimination of over 20 positions across multiple departments.

“Affected by this move will also be the closing of some open positions that the company had planned to fill this fiscal year. Employees affected by this action will receive severance and extended benefits.

“Brash Entertainment will continue to strategically work on its business including the upcoming release of Six Flags Fun Park for the Wii scheduled for this December, and a video game based on the SAW movie franchise for release in 2009.”

The news is merely the latest in a bustle of publisher redundancies in recent weeks, with both EA and THQ feeling the brunt of worsening economic conditions.
