FreeStyle Games Suffer Layoffs After Activision Restructure


Guitar Hero Live and SiNG Party developer FreeStyle Games has recently entered “a consultation exercise” with Activision, the outcome being that the studio will be restructured.

That means that they have sadly suffered layoffs, in an effort “to better align the studio resources with future business needs.” Activision shared that they have looked to “rebalance staff,” trying to reallocate those affected by such redundancies.

“Activision and FreeStyle Games leadership have been considering a range of future options for the studio, and have been consulting with staff to explore all alternatives,” the publisher shared in a statement.

“The collective team have now reached the end of a consultation exercise and the decision has been made to restructure FreeStyleGames to better align the studio resources with future business needs. We are working with the studio teams to explore options to rebalance staff within Activision Blizzard and its related organisations.

“The UK remains a key market for Activision Blizzard and FreeStyleGames continues to be a great partner. We thank all of the team for their continued passion, creativity and commitment.”
