007 Legends developer Eurocom has announced that they have laid off more than 150 people, citing a decrease in demand for console games. The studio dropped its staff to under 50 employees to focus on mobile development.
Studio head Hugh Binns said in a statement (obtained by GI.biz) that "we've fought to try and save as many jobs as possible, but the steep decline in demand for console games, culminating in a number of console projects falling through in the last week, left us with no option."
It probably did not help that 007 Legends was so poorly received.
