NASCAR dev Eutechnyx lays off 12 in effort to become less of a ‘work-for-hire’ studio

Posted on February 18, 2014 AT 02:17pm

NASCAR series developer Eutechnyx has let go of 12 employees as part of ongoing restructuring, Develop reports.

According to CEO Darren Jobling, the 12 employees represent only ten percent of the company’s staff. Other staffers have been loaned to Ubisoft Reflections.

“On Friday, we made unfortunately 12 people redundant,” Jobling told Develop. “We’ve made no bones about the fact we wanted to move away from being a work-for-hire developer on consoles to publishing our own titles, so it’s highly regrettable that we did have to make 12 people redundant.”

These layoffs, of course, do not affect NASCAR ’14, which launches on Windows PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 today, point of fact.
