Deviation Games Has Closed

After being hit with layoffs last year, Deviation Games has now shuttered.

Several employees took to LinkedIn to announce they were looking for new opportunities.

“After the closure of Deviation Games last Friday, I’m actively seeking Senior Character Artist roles,” said former Deviation Games Senior Character Artist Alec Hundstad via LinkedIn. “Looking forward to landing somewhere awesome.”

“After the closure of Deviation Games last Friday, I find myself open to new opportunities again. I am especially sad as I had just joined the team and they are a fantastic group of individuals. Our time together was far too short,” says Former Lead User Interface Engineer at Deviation Games Andrew Carroll on LinkedIn.

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of Deviation Games,” Deviation Games chief human resources and operations officer Kriste Stull announced via a LinkedIn post. “I want to express my deepest gratitude to our entire team. Thank you for all your hard work, dedication, and contributions to Deviation; I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have worked with each and every one of you.”

Deviation Games was founded in 2020 by Dave Anthony and Jason Blundell, former veterans at Activision where they worked on the  Call of Duty series.

One year later, the studio partnered with Sony Interactive Entertainment to develop a brand-new original IP.
