Codemasters Hit With Redundancies, Up To 80 May Be Affected


Codemasters has confirmed it will be jettisoning a number of jobs. While the company maintains its F1 and GRID franchises will not be affected, most of the job cuts will seemingly be made at its Southam headquarters, where its GRID staff are housed, with the Online team hit hardest.

“As the Company realigns its operations to focus on areas of increased strategic importance and decrease resources in areas that are not delivering value for the business, the Company has proposed the restructure of certain aspects within its digital development and publishing units in line with future product strategy,” a company statement reads.

“As a result of the proposed restructure, the Company has therefore entered into a period of collective consultation with the affected employees. The restructure is not company-wide and is not anticipated to impact the development of its core console and PC titles such as Grid 2 or its annual Formula One title.”
