Supermassive Games To Lay Off Around 90 Employees

Supermassive Games, developer of Until Dawn and The Quarry, has announced its plans to reduce its workforce by about 90 people.

The studio employs around 150 people and has told staff they are “at risk” of losing their jobs. According to labour laws in the UK, companies are required to give advanced notice of impending mass layoffs.

“After much deliberation and with deep regret, we are therefore undertaking a reorganisation of
Supermassive Games,” the studio said. “As a result, we are entering into a period of consultation, which we anticipate will result in the loss of some of our colleagues.

On Twitter, Supermassive Games released a statement confirming that layoffs were coming and that it is “undertaking a reorganization.”

Supermassive Games continues, “This is not a decision that’s been taken lightly, with many efforts made to avoid this outcome. We are all too aware of how unsettling and difficult this process is going to be for all our
employees and will be working closely with all those involved to ensure the process is conducted as respectfully and compassionately as possible.”

The studio is working with Behavior Interactive on a game set in the Dead by Daylight universe called The Casting of Frank Stone, which is supposedly set to launch this year.
