According to a report by GamesRadar, the developer behind the recently released 007 Legends has been forced to lay off its remaining staff earlier this week as the company went into administration. The vast majority of Eurocom was already let go in November, after the company decided to refocus on mobile games rather than console titles. More details are included after the jump.
Eurocom was founded in 1988 and became well-known for developing titles based on larger franchises, including several 007 titles and working with the Harry Potter, Pirates of the Carribean, and Batman franchises. The company had around 200 employees during development of 007 Legends, though roughly 75% of the entire team was laid off in November. The remaining 42 developers were let go from the British developer on Friday.
007 Legends, the most recently released title by Eurocom, was released on October 16th and received generally negative reviews. Before that, the studio developed Harry Potter for Kinect, which was more positively received.
