Sony Santa Monica has suffered a round of layoffs at the studio, which if rumours are correct has led to one of its projects being cancelled.
IGN first reported the story and was send the following statement by Sony.
"SCEA can confirm that we have completed a reduction in workforce at Santa Monica Studio.
"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."
There was no confirmation of the number of people affected, nor any impact on current projects.
We'd like to wish all those affected good luck in finding a new role.
