Sources have told Eurogamer that Evolution Studios, the developer of the recent PS4 exclusive Driveclub, has let go around 55 staff members.
Sony released the following statement on the matter, saying Evolution will now focus on the PS Plus Edition service going forward for Driveclub.
“We will be restructuring Evolution Studios to ensure that SCE WWS and in particular, Evolution Studios are in the best position to achieve these goals,” said Sony. “Our first party development studios are key to our creative strategy and we are very excited about the future projects being worked on and the role Evolution Studios will play.”
“We will be looking to relocate team members throughout the studios, but unfortunately some redundancies will be necessary and in those cases we will assist staff in any way we can.”
