Embracer Group discontinues a secret Deus Ex project, lays off some employees at Eidos Montreal

2024 appears poised to be a more challenging year for employees in the gaming sector, with job losses in January already surpassing half of the total cuts witnessed throughout the entire year of 2023. We regret to inform you that Embracer Group's ongoing organizational changes have resulted in additional layoffs.

Sources within Bloomberg have revealed that Embracer has decided to scrap a previously undeclared project in the Deus Ex series after two years of making it. Subsequently, a portion of the team at Eidos Montreal was let go. Eidos Montreal fell under Embracer's umbrella following its acquisition in 2022, and the now-canceled Deus Ex game was expected to enter full-scale production later in the year.

Details regarding the exact number of employees affected by the layoffs at Eidos Montreal remain undisclosed for the time being, and there has been no official communication from Embracer Group on the matter.
