CI Games Lays Off 10 Percent Of Workforce

CI Games, the studio behind Lords of the Fallen, has laid off around 10 percent of its workforce.

CI Games Hit With Layoffs

Posts on LinkedIn indicate the marketing team had been affected alongside employees at Hexworks and Underdog, the developer of Sniper Ghost Warrior.

“To preserve business strength and stability, CI Games has made the tough but necessary decision to implement a targeted round of redundancies, affecting approximately 10% of employees across the company.

“We would like to thank each of them for the part they’ve played during their time with us. Further business optimisations are being made to the organisation’s pipelines and processes,” a statement to GamesIndustry.biz from CEO Marek Tymiński said.

In our review of Lords of the Fallen from CI Games, I said, “Lords of the Fallen shows promise and delivers an exciting adventure but falls short of providing a consistently engaging Souls-like experience. Its familiarity with the genre’s giants is both a strength and a weakness. While it starts strong with compelling world design and mechanics, it stumbles later, succumbing to repetition and uninspired boss encounters. Despite its potential, this title ultimately leaves a lot to be desired.”
