Job Losses at Monumental

Posted on 11 November, 2010


Today brings more sad news for the UK games industry with the announcement that Monumental is laying off a portion of its staff.  Precise numbers haven’t emerged as yet, but “an unexpected project cancellation” suggests they will be sizeable.

Some of my former Emote colleagues were at Monumental, so I’m saddened they have gone through two company disasters in just over a year.  Hopefully all will find new jobs elsewhere in the industry very soon.

In September Monumental Games was placed sixth in The Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100 2010.
