A series of layoffs have reportedly been conducted by Embracer at subsidiary Gearbox Publishing.
"Unfortunately, no one saw it coming, but my contract and those of my colleagues who started in June had to be terminated on the last day of our probation month (which also happened to be my birthday, yay). We were simply victims of the group's restructuring."
The redundancies appear to be ongoing, with senior business development manager Steve Gee also posting on LinkedIn on Wednesday that he got laid off from Gearbox Publishing.
GamesIndustry.biz has reached out to Gearbox Publishing for comment.
These layoffs are the result of Embracer's restructuring program, announced in June following a "challenging year." At the time, CEO Lars Wingefors said it was unclear exactly how many people were going to be affected.
Since then, Embracer shut down Campfire Cabal earlier this August, not even a year after its creation, and veteran studio Volition Games just yesterday, after 30 years of existence.
Reporting its Q1 results earlier this month, Embracer saw its net sales rise by 47%.
