Crystal Dynamics Lays Off Members of Team Working on New IP Project

Crystal Dynamics has let go of about twelve employees working on an unannounced project unrelated to Tomb Raider, a Square Enix rep informed Kotaku.

“We’ve made some decisions at Crystal Dynamics last week around the second project we’re working on, which has resulted in a small number of roles (roughly 12) becoming redundant as we re-scope the project,” the statement sent to Kotaku reads. “This doesn’t affect the Tomb Raider development team, who as confirmed last week are well into production on a next-generation sequel. We’re a close-knit team at Crystal and wouldn’t be making these changes if we didn’t feel it was absolutely necessary. We’ll help those affected as best we can and we want to thank them for their hard work and commitment.”

The project in question is a new IP that Crystal Dynamics had teased the existence of over a year ago, in January 2012, when they hinted at revealing an “exciting new intellectual property to the world.”
