Codemasters has confirmed a number of staff are currently at risk of losing their jobs.

Speaking to GI, it’s expected up 80 employees could lose their jobs as the company looks to restructure.

“As the Company realigns its operations to focus on areas of increased strategic importance and decrease resources in areas that are not delivering value for the business, the Company has proposed the restructure of certain aspects within its digital development and publishing units in line with future product strategy,” the company said in a statement.

“As a result of the proposed restructure, the Company has therefore entered into a period of collective consultation with the affected employees.”

A spokesman also suggested “it is not anticipated” that development of the company’s core franchises will be affected.
