Take-Two confirms UK job losses

A Take-Two spokesperson has told <i>GamesIndustry.biz</i> that some staff from the company's UK office have been made redundant as part of new restructuring plans.

A Take-Two spokesperson has told GamesIndustry.biz that some staff from the company's UK office have been made redundant as part of new restructuring plans.

The PR and marketing departments were hit hardest but there will be some reorganisation of roles, according to US spokesperson Ed Nebb.

"While some marketing and PR positions were eliminated in the UK, others were transferred to specific labels, such as 2K," he confirmed.

It also seems that job cuts and transfers are planned within Take-Two's other offices. Nebb stated, "This approach is consistent across our international operations."

News of the UK job losses comes after Take-Two confirmed the closure of 2K Games' New York office, adding that some projects in development had been cancelled.

The publisher announced it would be embarking on a restructuring programme earlier this week after posting Q2 net losses of USD 51.2 million.
