Phoenix Labs Announces Game Cancellations And Layoffs Amidst Company Restructuring

Phoenix Labs, the studio behind Dauntless and Fae Farm, has revealed that it has cancelled a number of projects and laid off staff as a result of undergoing major restructuring.

According to Kris Morness, the former principle engineer at Phoenix Labs, the company has laid off “about 140” of its staff. Speaking on its LinkedIn profile, Phoenix Labs issued the following statement:

We are reorganizing Phoenix Labs to focus on our best-in-class live service titles, Dauntless and Fae Farm, and serving their communities.

This unfortunately means canceling work on all other projects at the studio, which will impact many of our colleagues immediately. We are giving notices to everyone whose roles are affected. This restructure has not come easily, and truly has been the last resort to ensure Phoenix Labs can survive, and thrive in the long term.

It’s impossible to put into words how deeply we value every talented individual who has contributed their hard work and passion to every project at our studio. We are doing all we can to help our departing team members in this interim period and encourage any studios looking for incredible talent to speak with the one-of-a-kind people that have been a part of Phoenix Labs’ journey.

Phoenix Labs was established by a number of former Riot Games employees back in 2014, and has seen a lot of success with both Dauntless and Fae Farm. While it isn’t known what games were cancelled due to the restructuring efforts, the studio previously confirmed that it had “several new projects in development spanning a wide range of styles and genres — fantasy, sci-fi, action, strategy, and everything in between.”
