Relic Entertainment and Sega Europe announced today that the layoffs have affected the studio, affecting 121 jobs.
In a statement posted on Twitter, Relic says the layoffs are due to “external factors” that “challenge our industry more than ever,” likely in reference to the global economy.
“Relic and Sega remain fully committed to supporting and investing in our titles, including the recently released Company of Heroes 3,” the statement read. “We are confident that following this necessary restructuring, Relic will be in a strong position to continue to deliver outstanding experiences to players around the world.”
Company of Heroes 3 released in February. Our review praised the strategy game’s production values and campaign. Relic also developed 2021’s Age of Empires IV.
