Project MyWorld back on as staff re-hired
Begbies Traynor takes back 23 staffers in Dundee following "considerable interest from potential buyers"
Begbies Traynor, the company handling the administration of Dundee-based developer Realtime Worlds, has confirmed that it has rehired a further 23 of the staff which were made redundant earlier this month, all from the team working on the MyWorld project.
Speaking to Gamesindustry.biz, Begbies Traynor representative Les Able told us that all of the jobs were based in Dundee, seemingly putting paid to rumours that the development of MyWorld would be moving to Realtime World's Colorado office.
Joint administrator Ken Pattullo issued a statement last night: "As a smaller entity MyWorld is attracting considerable interest from potential buyers and 23 members of the team who had been working on the project clearly add value to it as a standalone business, hence the fact we have been able to offer a limited number of those jobs back."
The company had previously announced that 67 jobs were to be retained at the company, 53 jobs in the UK and 14 in the US, but interest from investors in MyWorld has prompted the administrator to extend its offer.
