Reports are suggesting as many as 15 employees at Crytek’s Frankfurt studio have been let go.

Eurogamer is reporting that a round of layoffs has hit German developer Crytek, with the company letting go as many as 15 employees at its Frankfurt studio. If you’ll remember, there was a bit of an issue with Crytek several months ago and then back in 2014 where the company was struggling to pay its employees.

In a statement, Crytek managing director Avni Yerli stated that the company was scaling down the business to focus on game development and technology. “Unfortunately, one of the inevitable effects of this process has been the redundancies we are announcing today,” he explained.

“We are extremely grateful for the hard work and dedication of each and every person at Crytek, and the team members we now have to say goodbye to will receive comprehensive support that reflect that gratitude.”

In December, Crytek said it was selling off multiple studios, including its Budapest (Hungary), Sofia (Bulgaria), Seoul (South Korea) and Shanghai (China) developers. Reports coming in from the company are that morale is quite low, and some employees reportedly haven’t been paid since December.

It looks like things aren’t looking so great for the studio that gave us Crysis.
