Humble Games is making layoffs

Indie publisher Humble is making cuts to its workforce.

That's according to GLHF, which has confirmation from the games company following its reporting that there had been layoffs at the firm. In a statement, Humble Games said that it was restructuring to weather market conditions. It's unclear how many people are impacted by this round of layoffs.

"Yesterday was a difficult day for Humble Games and we can confirm that we had to say goodbye to valued colleagues. Like many companies this year, we have experienced trends that required this restructure in order to ensure our long-term success," a company spokesperson said.

"It's especially worth noting that everyone impacted by these changes are talented, dedicated individuals who made a huge impact.

"Humble Games remains focused and committed to working with amazing indie developers to bring their experiences to players around the world in the years ahead."

This is the latest in a wave of layoffs that are impacting the games industry.
