“A lot of people, including core devs, will be looking for work asap. Hopefully they land jobs soon. This one hits me hard because I worked with the new 3DR from 2014 up until when they were bought out by Embracer 2.5 yrs ago.”
Another, now former, sound designer at 3D Realms posted: “I guess 2023 wouldn’t be complete without me losing the best job I’ve ever had in my life. I’ll figure it out… I guess.”
It’s unclear how many people have been let go in this latest round of layoffs by Embracer Group. What is clear is that more hardworking people are now out of work in a year when nearly 10,000 people have been let go from game studios around the world.
Since August, Embracer Group has laid off employees from 16 of its studios as part of a “restructuring”. It’s expected that more layoffs will come in 2024.
What do you think of the latest set of layoffs from Embracer Group, this time at 3D Realms and Slipgate Ironworks?
