King's Z2 studio cuts support staff

"We are removing some support functions and capitalizing on the experience and talent within the studio"

Z2, the Seattle studio owned by King, is facing layoffs today. King confirmed the job cuts but not the numbers in a statement.

"We acquired the Seattle studio last year and are now integrating it into our business and aligning it with our strategic goals. We are removing some support functions and capitalizing on the experience and talent within the studio, so we can best deliver on our goal of bringing the very best games to our network," King told Geekwire.

Z2 is best known for titles like Battle Nations and Metalstorm and King announced it was in the process of acquiring the studio for $45 million in cash, with another $105 million in future payments tied to revenue goals, back in February 2015.
