Racing game specialist Codemasters today announced layoffs at the company, as it looks to realign and remove its operations that are no longer delivering value.

In a statement to Gamasutra, the UK-based company noted that the proposed restructure is not company-wise, and will therefore not affect certain titles that are in development, such as GRID 2 and its F1 racing series.

Codemasters did not state how many employees will be affected by the move, simply noting that it has "entered into a period of collective consultation with the affected employees." Eurogamer reports that around 80 people may have been affected.

The news follows a troubling 2012 for the company, including a period in which it claims it accidentally overpaid laid off staffers.

Last April the company said that it was dropping development on all non-racing titles and focusing solely on racing games, while it later revealed an attempt to mix arcade gameplay in with its realistic F1 series.
