God of War studio, Sony Santa Monica is laying off staff before it moves offices and leaves Santa Monica.
Sony Computer Entertainment America confirmed this in a statement released to the media. It said that "SCEA can confirm that we have completed a reduction in workforce at Santa Monica Studio...." it continued:
This is a result of a cycle of resource re-alignment against priority growth areas within Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios. We do not take these decisions lightly. However, sometimes it is necessary to make changes to better serve the future projects of the studio. We have offered outplacement services and severance packages to ease transition for those impacted."
