Sony Santa Monica Hit With Layoffs

Posted February 27, 2014 by Kat in News

Sad news out of California as the Sony Santa Monica studio has been hit with layoffs.  Early reports of the change-over were late confirmed by Sony, who released a statement, saying: “SCEA can confirm that we have completed a reduction in workforce at Santa Monica Studio.  This is a result of a cycle of resource re-alignment against priority growth areas within SCE WWS. We do not take these decisions lightly. However, sometimes it is necessary to make changes to better serve the future projects of the studio. We have offered outplacement services and severance packages to ease transition for those impacted.”

The Sony-owned developer is best known for the God of War games, though they’ve also had a hand in other titles such as PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, to say nothing of the prolific developers that got their start at the studio before moving on to the likes of thatgamecompany and Fun Bits.  In addition to the layoffs, there have also been indications that an unnamed project has also been cancelled.

Best of luck to everyone affected by the layoffs.
