More layoffs under Sony Computer Entertainment have affected "numerous employees", reports Siloconera, via Videogamer. Three of their studios have been impacted by these layoffs- Guerilla Cambridge, noted for Killzone: Mercenary, Evolution Studios, who did Motorstorm and DriveClub, and SCE London Studio, who developed the PlayStation 4's The Playroom.

A Sony spokesperson stated the following to Videogamer:

Regular reviews take place throughout SCE Worldwide Studios, ensuring that the resources that we have in such a competitive business can create and produce high quality, innovative and commercially viable projects. As part of this process, we have reviewed and assessed all current projects and have decided to make some changes to some of our European Studios.

As a result of this, there will be a focused restructure within London Studio, Guerrilla Cambridge Studio and Evolution Studio to ensure that the SCE WWS is in the best position to achieve their goals going forward. Our first party development studios are key to our creative strategy and we are very excited about the future projects being worked on.

It has been noted that the development of DriveClub will not be affected by the cutbacks.
