Bloomberg correspondent Jason Schreier in his profile on the social network X (formerly Twitter) said that Epic Games has begun significant cuts.

They will affect 16% of the company's staff (about 900 employees).

The message was published with reference to internal sources. The company itself has not yet given any information about any cuts.

What such steps of Epic Games are connected with is not yet reported. We are waiting for details.

Update: inside the company, rumors about this started in the morning, when many employees were blocked by Slack. Then the company sent out an appeal to employees, in which it announced the cuts. All those dismissed will receive a six-month allowance and insurance.
