The developer behind The Callisto Protocol, Striking Distance Studios, has laid off 32 employees from its staff. Questions began after several LinkedIn posts appeared, and the layoffs were later confirmed by the studio.
In a statement to IGN, Striking Distance Studios said, “Striking Distance Studios and KRAFTON have implemented strategic changes that realign the studio’s priorities to better position its current and future projects for success.”
The developer continued, “Unfortunately, these changes have impacted 32 employees. Honoring the invaluable contributions of each departing team member with material support in the form of outplacement services and meaningful severance packages is our top priority during this difficult moment.”
