Eidos-Montreal made the announcement in a publication on X (formerly Twitter). The studio cites the economic context, the challenges of the industry and the global restructuring announced by Embracer among the reasons which force it to act in this way.

The difficult decision to part ways with 97 people across our development, administration and support teams has been made.
