Behaviour Interactive confirms laying off 45 workers

Canadian developer Behaviour Interactive has joined the ranks of games industry companies cutting their employee numbers.

Word that the Death by Daylight studio was making layoffs first broke via Kotaku, which reported that 45 staff had lost their jobs earlier in January. Behaviour has now confirmed the news to, saying that this is just three per cent of its total workforce.

"Recently, changing market conditions necessitated adjusting the scope of several Behaviour projects," a Behaviour rep said.

"In these situations, our preference is always to reassign talent to other projects. Unfortunately, this option is not always available to us. These departures represented less than three per cent of our total workforce."

Only the company's staff in Montreal are affected, though multiple departments have been impacted.
