Until Dawn Developer Supermassive Games Announces Big Layoffs

According to a report from Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, British developer Supermassive Games has announced to their employees that 150 staff members are “at risk” of redundancy and that they are planning to lay off approximately 90 of them.

Unlike in the US, labour laws in the UK require companies to give notice ahead of a mass layoff. Employees were informed of the coming job reductions on Monday morning, according to an email reviewed by Bloomberg News.

Supermassive Games boasts over 300 employees, which means that over half of them are facing potential layoffs. This is depressing news for a company that’s developed various successful interactive narrative adventure horror games in the past, including 2015’s Until Dawn, 2022’s The Quarry and several entries in The Dark Picture Anthology series.

An official statement from Supermassive Games reads:

Heck, Until Dawn is getting not only a remake for the PS5 and PC sometime in 2024 (however, this isn’t being developed Supermassive Games), but the game is also getting a live-action movie adaptation in the future.

Recently, more than 600o workers in the games industry have been laid off, including a whopping 1900 from Xbox and Activision Blizzard alone.
