Sega was laying off the Relic Entertainment studio

The Canadian studio Relic Entertainment has been known for years for quality strategies. He has the Homeworld or Company of Heroes series to his credit, worked on the Dawn of War games and also brought us Age of Empires IV. All quality games that RTS fans fondly remember, but it doesn’t seem to be enough. Sega has announced the dismissal of a total of 121 employees of this studio. It had over 300 employees at the start of the year, so these are certainly not small cuts, although there will still be quite a few developers remaining at the studio.

According to Sega, it was a difficult decision, but it remains committed to supporting and investing in Relic games. The studio added:

This decision comes at a time when external factors are impacting our industry more than ever, and we have therefore decided to restructure our organization to ensure maximum focus on our core brands. We are confident that following this necessary restructuring, Relic will be in a strong position to continue to deliver outstanding experiences to players around the world.
