Crystal Dynamics has confirmed that publisher Square-Enix has laid off "roughly 12" employees as it "re-assesses" an unnamed project the developer has been working on alongside the Tomb Raider sequel.
According to a Crystal Dynamics rep, “We’ve made some decisions at Crystal Dynamics last week around the second project we’re working on, which has resulted in a small number of roles (roughly 12) becoming redundant as we re-scope the project.
“This doesn’t affect the Tomb Raider development team, who as confirmed last week are well into production on a next-generation sequel.
“We’re a close-knit team at Crystal and wouldn’t be making these changes if we didn’t feel it was absolutely necessary. We’ll help those affected as best we can and we want to thank them for their hard work and commitment.”
The unnamed project was announced back in January 2012.
