Publishing label 2K Games is to restructure its Prague studio, the company has confirmed to CVG.
It is unclear how many jobs will be lost as some development resources are transferred to the company’s other Czech Republic studio based in Brno. The publisher said it also has an additional plan in place to relocate some staff from both Czech studios to the corporation’s California studio.
2K Games’ Prague studio, formerly known as Illusion Softworks, was responsible for the popular PC title Mafia 2. It was rumoured, though not confirmed, that the development outfit was working on Mafia 3.
