Just weeks ago, Xbox’s owner Microsoft announced mass layoffs, and now in an update, it seems the Crash Bandicoot, Spyro and Skylanders developer Toys for Bob has been hit.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, 86 workers will be affected at the developer’s office in Novato, California. A state filing has also revealed the facility will be closing.

While it’s unclear what exactly this means for Toys for Bob moving forward, Windows Central’s Jez Corden has already “got confirmation that Toys for Bob is not closing down“. Apart from employees impacted, it’s claimed the remaining team is being reassigned to remote work.

Fellow Activision (and California) developer Sledgehammer Games (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3) has also been impacted by layoffs in recent times, with 76 workers affected. As part of this apparent restructuring, it has closed its office, gone remote, and is looking at downsizing to a smaller office space (via Insider Gaming).

Over the past year, Toys for Bob released Crash Team Rumble and also supported Sledgehammer Games on the new Call of Duty title.
