Team17 is planning some restructuring. This would mean that around 50 jobs would be at risk. Even the CEO should resign.
Team17 will be familiar to many of you thanks to titles like “Overcooked!”, “Worms” and “Moving Out”. The developer and publisher is now reportedly planning a major restructuring that would result in the loss of a “significant” number of jobs.
There is said to have been an important meeting at the company this morning in which employees were informed about this step.
Around 50 jobs are pending at Team17
Team17 is said to be planning a restructuring of the company. Accordingly, quality assurance should be handed over to an external company. This would mean that the current QA team could be affected by job cuts. The group includes around 50 people.
According to the team structure document, most of the jobs being eliminated will involve junior QA analysts. According to the report, it will not only affect employees in the QA department, but even the CEO. Accordingly, Michael Pattison, who has been the managing director of Team17’s publishing company since October 2021, should step down as CEO.
According to an earlier report, Team17 Group CEO Debbie Bestwick is also set to resign. A full tour is expected on January 1, 2024. However, the current report does not specify which other departments and positions may be affected.
A solution-oriented process is currently scheduled to take place as part of the restructuring and is scheduled to run until the end of November. The reason for the job cuts is not yet known.
This news comes shortly after the announcement that Epic Games would also be laying off some of its employees. However, there are more than 800 jobs that are to be eliminated.
There are also layoffs at Creative Assembly. The discontinuation of the multiplayer shooter “Hyenas” will result in an unspecified number of jobs being eliminated.
