Crypt of the NecroDancer Studio Has Reportedly Laid off Half of its Employees
The studio behind Crypt of the NecroDancer, Cadence of Hyrule, and the upcoming Rift of the NecroDancer—Brace Yourself Games—seems to be going through lay offs. As caught by GameSpot, Developers from the studio are taking to Twitter to reveal that they have been let go from the studio.
Crystal Savin has revealed that she was laid off from the studio after working there for only four months. Savin has also revealed that the studio has cut its staff by around 50%.
The studio had announced its next project—Rift of the NecroDancer—back in April. In a departure from its dungeon crawling roots, the upcoming title focuses more on lane-based combat and storytelling.
The game was first unveiled alongside a DLC that was released for the original Crypt of the NecroDancer, which among other things, brought 8-player multiplayer to the game, and three new playable characters.
Rift of the NecroDancer doesn’t yet have a release date aside from a 2023 release window. It is slated for release on PC and Nintendo Switch.
With a (very) heavy heart, I am announcing that I was recently impacted by a 50% cut in workforce at my studio after only being at the company for 4 months.
I am actively seeking employment opportunities in the game development, esports, and influencer spaces. RTs appreciated🙏 pic.twitter.com/CRFNuPdwPt
