Driveclub dev, Guerrilla Games Cambridge and Sony London Studio lay-offs confirmed

Sony has confirmed job cuts at Driveclub developer Evolution Studios, Killzone: Mercenary team Guerrilla Games Cambridge and SCE Sony London Studio.

It was made official to Videogamer this morning, and while official redundancy figures are unclear, Sony has stated that a number of people will be let go from each of the three teams.

A Sony rep told the site, "Regular reviews take place throughout SCE Worldwide Studios, ensuring that the resources that we have in such a competitive business can create and produce high quality, innovative and commercially viable projects.

"As part of this process, we have reviewed and assessed all current projects and have decided to make some changes to some of our European Studios. As a result of this, there will be a focused restructure within London Studio, Guerrilla Cambridge Studio and Evolution Studio to ensure that the SCE WWS is in the best position to achieve their goals going forward.

"Our first party development studios are key to our creative strategy and we are very excited about the future projects being worked on."

It follows confirmation of redundancies at Sony Santa Monica Studio last month, and the cancellation of an unannounced sci-fi IP.

It appears that Sony is cleaning house, but regarding the status of Evolution's oft-delayed Driveclub, the Sony rep added, "development of Driveclub will not be affected."
