Reductions have affected the team working on a project for Square Enix. Companies in the gaming industry are laying off employees again. This time, the layoffs have affected the studios People Can Fly and Black Forest Games. It is obvious that this ignominious record will be broken after several weeks in 2024. Over 30 people will bid farewell to their jobs, mainly from the team responsible for the game known as Project Gemini, as 20 developers will be leaving. The head of the production department, Adam Alker, explained in a letter to the employees that the layoffs are due to budget constraints and a reduction in the scale of the game. Project Gemini is funded by Square Enix, which most likely decided that it will not be as ambitious a title as planned. People Can Fly then announced that they are in talks with Square Enix to change the commercial terms of this project. In November, the studio also announced changes to *Project Dagger* – the plans to release the game in 2025-2026 were abandoned. Originally, it was being developed in collaboration with Take-Two Interactive, but it was ultimately decided that it would be released by People Can Fly, resulting in a reduction of the team’s size to 10 people. Besides *Project Gemini* and *Project Dagger*, the studio is also working on projects such as *Maverick* (an RPG being developed for Microsoft), *Bifrost*, *Victoria*, and *Red*. In this case, the scale is catastrophic, with around 50 employees being laid off, which constitutes half of the team.
