A new studio has spawned from a round of redundancies at Relentless software called Full Moon.
Kalvin Lyle, a representative for the new firm told GI.biz the new studio and its former Relentless employees feel no animosity over losing their jobs, and were warned of the lay-offs ahead of time.
“I can’t speak for everyone, but I think we’re trying to make the best of it,” said Lyle. “Those let go from Relentless are some of the most talented people I’ve worked with in my 15 year career.
“Obviously it’s not a great situation, the landscape for employment isn’t great right now in the south east or in the UK. With all the recent closures and redundancies there’s a lot of competition. For those with families who can’t easily relocate, it makes things very difficult.
“The reductions at Relentless were completely understandable, we were all given fair notification and I think Relentless handled it very well. We hope to work with Relentless again possibly as an outsource partner, supporting them any way we can. We wish them the very best.”
Full Moon plans to focus on casual gaming and releases via digital distribution.
