A Sony representative confirmed the job cuts in a statement to GameSpot. The company did not, however, address the speculation that an in-development game had been canceled.
“SCEA can confirm that we have completed a reduction in workforce at Santa Monica Studio,” the Sony representative said. “This is a result of a cycle of resource re-alignment against priority growth areas within SCE WWS. We do not take these decisions lightly. However, sometimes it is necessary to make changes to better serve the future projects of the studio. We have offered outplacement services and severance packages to ease transition for those impacted.”
