Ignition's new "core focus" is on the "world's best external developers" to deliver triple A content to digital platforms. London is still their HQ.
"Throughout the last year Ignition has gone through a number of changes, including bringing in a strong new management team with a core focus of working with the world's best external developers to bring AAA content to emerging downloadable platforms,” said Ignition Entertainment chairman Hassan Sadiq.
"This week saw the pre-scheduled completion of a six month proof of concept project on the War Devil / Project Kane titles internally, which the board and studio management are currently evaluating as to whether the required quality will be achieved by completing internally or with an external partner."
"The London office will continue to operate as the global headquarters for Ignition's corporate and fast growing publishing business. Development is ramping up at Ignition's free-to-play studios based in Austin and Beijing, as well as at internal console development studios in Florida (Reich) and Tokyo (El Shaddai – winner of CESA's most anticipated title at TGS 2010)," continued the issued statement.
"These combined with a number of new publishing acquisitions for release in calendar 2011 will ensure we meet the challenge of transforming into a next-generation publishing powerhouse head on." The number being laid off is unknown.
