UK-based video games maker Codemasters has confirmed it will be making cuts to its workforce as part of an ongoing company-wide restructuring process.

Reports suggest that 80 people will me made redundant, but core franchises on PC and consoles aren't expected to be affected.

"As the Company realigns its operations to focus on areas of increased strategic importance and decrease resources in areas that are not delivering value for the business, the Company has proposed the restructure of certain aspects within its digital development and publishing units in line with future product strategy," said Codemasters in a statement.

"As a result of the proposed restructure, the Company has therefore entered into a period of collective consultation with the affected employees.

"The restructure is not company-wide and is not anticipated to impact the development of its core console and PC titles such as Grid 2 or its annual Formula One title."
