Following word earlier this week that UK-based developer Rare was undergoing restructuring, it has come to light that around 12 positions have been axed. According to a GI.biz report, both the art and engineering departments suffered a reduction in headcount. Furthermore, project leads are being let go as well, with Rare asking employees to ask for positions elsewhere within the company.
It’s not all downhill though. In midst of all this, there has been no evidence of any major projects being canned over at Rare. Here’s hoping the restructuring effort puts them back on track.
