Eidos Employees Say ‘Bye Boss’

Tomb Raider publishers, Eidos, have confirmed the closure of a Manchester team which was involved with mobile gaming, forging fourteen redundancies. The team, previously known as Rockpool Games, was acquired by Eidos in 2007 during their push into the casual and mobile gaming markets.

Discussing the job losses, Eidos explained the neccessity for the cuts:

“As a company we need to focus our efforts on high-quality titles that will deliver long-term franchise value, and in these incredibly challenging and competitive times we need to pro-actively manage our cost base”

This cut, resulting in 14 redundancies, is just the latest in a long list of business reshuffles across the whole of the gaming industry, leaving many workers out of a job.

Please comment with your thoughts.

Sam has been unable to peel his bloodshot eyes and RSI-ridden wrists from the world of gaming since he was first introduced to it, like all good junkies, by his Grandad. From those early days of MegaDrive sweetness, bashing through the throngs of enemies on Shining Force II, his love of all things games has extended upwards and outwards onto a variety of platforms. You can either believe that spiel, or get the real scoop and know that his spaceship actually crashed here some years ago and he is currently incognito as a games writer for Console Monster.
