Rovio, the Finnish video games developer behind the hugely successful Angry Birds series, is to cut around 10% of its global workforce as part of a “reorganisation” of its operations.
A total of 110 staff will be made redundant while the firm will also close its game development studio in Tampere, Finland.
The company, which currently boasts a global workforce of around 800, had previously estimated that 130 staff would be cut.
Rovio will now consolidate its Finnish operations in Espoo as part of the reorganisation process.
In a statement, Rovio said: “As part of its reorganisation, several positions have been opened for internal applicants.
“The final number of employees impacted depends on how many of these new positions are filled.”
