Coming on the heels of low reviews for Thief, the game's developer laid off 27 employees yesterday.
"Yes it is true we've let 27 people go today, unfortunately it's something that every major studio has to do sometimes in order to ensure you have the right set up for current and future projects," Eidos Montreal told Polygon in a statement. "It's never a nice thing to do but we are genuinely trying to offer as much support as much as we can. We're trying to re-locate as many people as possible into other roles here or at our other studios and we've been in touch [with] several studios in Montreal to arrange a career day for those affected by this. We're very thankful for all their hard work and we sincerely wish them well."
It's a bit heartbreaking to see a studio cut employees so soon after a game release, especially a game release that hasn't done so well.
Eidos Montreal is still working on a new Deus Ex game that will, according to the studio, define the Deus Ex Universe.
