Eidos Montreal Lays Off 27 Following Release of Thief

Eidos Montreal has confirmed reports that they have laid off 27 people from their staff.

This comes just a week after the studio released Thief for Windows, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Eidos’ full statement is below:

Yes it is true we’ve let 27 people go today, unfortunately it’s something that every major studio has to do sometimes in order to ensure you have the right set up for current and future projects,” a representative told us via email. “It’s never a nice thing to do but we are genuinely trying to offer as much support as much as we can. We’re trying to re-locate as many people as possible into other roles here or at our other studios and we’ve been in touch several studios in Montreal to arrange a career day for those affected by this. We’re very thankful for all their hard work and we sincerely wish them well.

Thief was released in North America February 25 to mixed reviews. Metacritic scores for Xbox One, PS4, and Windows are at 68-69.
