Behaviour Interactive Is Laying Off 95 People

Behaviour Interactive will lay off 95 people from its headcount, with 70 employees affected at the Montreal office.

A press release from Behaviour indicates the layoffs are part of a “strategic change” for “future growth,” yet it did not reveal the changes.

The studio revealed that growth from Dead by Daylight and the studio’s reputation as one of “gaming’s most highly regarded service partners, and working alongside the industry’s global leaders” were reasons why the studio expanded so quickly.

Over the past five years, Behaviour grew from 575 employees to 1,300 over the same period, parallel to the gaming industry’s “remarkable” growth. Now, the main issue is competition, and Behaviour wants to focus on the company’s lead in horror and service titles.

“I would like to express my deep personal appreciation for any employee affected by today’s changes,” stated Rémi Racine, Behaviour’s Co-Founder and CEO. “While changes to our structure and strategic vision have led to challenging decisions, we are confident that these decisions will position us for continued success. As we begin the next phase of Behaviour’s growth, our commitment to excellence in our products and workplace culture remains steadfast.”

Earlier this year, Behaviour faced layoffs, with 45 people affected worldwide.
