007 Legends developer Eurocom lays off remaining staff

Eurocom, the 007 Legends developer which laid off 75 percent of its workforce in November, has eliminated its remaining positions. The last employees were terminated after the company entered administration.

"As a result, the remaining 42 employees have been made redundant today and the business has ceased to trade after some 25 years, having grown organically to become one of the largest and most prolific independent console games developers worldwide," read a statement from the studio provided to Eurogamer.

"The Directors of Eurocom would like to offer their heartfelt thanks to all their staff that have been made redundant at this difficult time, and show their appreciation of all of their hard work in consistently delivering exceptional games."

Eurocom stood as an independently owned licensed console game contractor since its establishment in 1988. Before entering administration, studio director Hugh Binns said the company planned to begin focusing on mobile games. Its recent titles were largely Activision-licensed Bond games, including GoldenEye 007: Reloaded.
