Layoffs at Kabam San Francisco

"Kabam's business strategy is to focus on fewer, bigger, and bolder AAA mobile games"

Kabam has confirmed it has cut staff at its San Francisco headquarters. It has not disclosed how many people the move affects.

"Kabam's business strategy is to focus on fewer, bigger, and bolder AAA mobile games. We have made the difficult decision to reduce the size of our San Francisco-based studio," it told Gamasutra in a statement.

"While we are making several large investments in a new slate of games in multiple locations, we must also be mindful of costs. We are extremely grateful to all the employees who have contributed to the longstanding history of Kabam's San Francisco studio. This hard but essential decision allows us to stay focused on our mission to create the world's favorite massively multiplayer free-to-play games."

In February Kabam cut 8% of staff.
