Sony has confirmed that several studios in their UK studio system have been affected by a round of layoffs, including London Studio, Guerrilla Cambridge Studio, and Evolution Studio (who are known for the currently delayed DriveClub). Sony has yet to reveal just how many employees were let go in the latest round of layoffs as part of a restructuring plan.

"Regular reviews take place throughout SCE Worldwide Studios, ensuring that the resources that we have in such a competitive business can create and produce high quality, innovative and commercially viable projects," a Sony rep. told VideoGamer.

"As part of this process, we have reviewed and assessed all current projects and have decided to make some changes to some of our European Studios. As a result of this, there will be a focused restructure within London Studio, Guerrilla Cambridge Studio and Evolution Studio to ensure that the SCE WWS is in the best position to achieve their goals going forward."

In related news DriveClub's game director Col Rodgers has left Evolution Studios, moving on to form indie startup Big Red Switch Games which is working on "some cool game concepts."

Rodgers left the studio in February, though confirmed to VideoGamer that his departure was not connected to the recent layoffs. What isn't clear though is who exactly will be leading development on Evolution's delayed PlayStation 4 racer DriveClub, which was suppose to have launched with the new gen console.

Where's the 'Next generation of renegades' in the UK then?
(I'm seriously sick of the marketing speil going on for the current gen of hardware.)

The real killer for the PS4 is the lack of content, and this /really/ doesn't bode well as a solution to that problem :S
