Eidos makes 14 staff redundant as it closes Rockpool Studios
Develop reports that Eidos has closed its Rockpool Studios in Manchester.
The company was acquired in 2007 to bolster Eidos’s activities in casual and mobile. Arguably Rockpool didn’t fit into Eidos’s new studio-led, IP-centric strategy and is a logical target for restructuring.
Edge points out that Rockpool had 36 staff when it was acquired. It is not known what happened to the other 22 staff (they may have already been let go or quit in earlier rounds of restructuring.)
Rockpool is added to the GameOverZone, along with 14 more job losses in the games industry.
