Microsoft has reportedly initiated a number of layoffs across various divisions, including the Xbox team. According to a report by Business Insider, the internal shift amounts to "less than" 1,000 employee redundancies at Microsoft.
As mentioned, Xbox is apparently one of the divisions to suffer, alongside the Microsoft Strategic Missions and Technology organisation, along with others.
Microsoft provided this statement to the reporter when questioned:
"Like all companies, we evaluate our business priorities on a regular basis, and make structural adjustments accordingly. We will continue to invest in our business and hire in key growth areas in the year ahead."
The report doesn't go into detail on the Xbox side of things, so we don't have any specifics about how significantly the team has been affected. If we hear more, we'll let you know.
