Abbey Games is “scoping down” and will terminate all employee contracts on December 31, 2019.
In the letter, the duo attributed to the upcoming layoffs to the struggles of its current project: Godhood. – “Making games is hard, very hard, and the Early Access release of our Godhood didn’t live up to the expectations that both we and our fans had for it.”
The studio said that the game was still on track to launch out of Early Access in the first half of 2020, and all Kickstarter backer rewards will still be issued.
When December 31 comes around, all employee contracts will be terminated, but it’s not clear how many jobs will be affected.
