According to a report on, the firm has cut 25 jobs and has announced board member Peter Tornquist will resign from his position, and the firm hasn’t any plans to replace him.

Tornquist has served as chairman of the board of directors at Starbreeze since November 2007, after previously serving as vice chairman, and a previous stint as its chairman from 2002 to 2007.

“It is sad that we are forced to make staff cutbacks affecting employees,” said company CEO Mikael Nermark, “but we have to reduce staff after the final delivery of the Syndicate.”
