Driver: San Francisco developer Ubisoft Reflects are facing hard times; a potential 19 employees could be laid off as the company restructures. An inside source claimed: “We weren’t given names, but they took some people into a separate office afterwards, gave them a letter and took them out of the building. That was it.”
This has since been confirmed by a Ubisoft spokesperson: “This is a proposal for reorganization, and it isn’t the people who are made redundant, but the jobs themselves. The people get to have their say about the reorganization.”
The spokesperson has assured everyone that despite the layoffs the studio will stay up and running after Driver is released.
Among those who are leaving are art director Jack Couvela and creative director Craig Lawson, two people that have worked with the developer for over a decade.
