In light of today's earlier rumours, Eidos has confirmed to videogaming247.com that it is closing its Rockpool Games Studio in Manchester.
"I can confirm this is true," said the company today.
As for the reason behind the closure, Edios added:
"As a company we need to focus our efforts on high-quality titles that will deliver long-term franchise value, and in these incredibly challenging and competitive times we need to pro-actively manage our cost base. This decision was a difficult one to make and we would like to thank these employees for their hard work and we wish them well in their future careers."
The business in Manchester employed approximately 14 people.
