Rovio shuts down Tampere studio as it confirms 110 job losses

Rovio shuts down Tampere studio as it confirms 110 job losses

It was big - if not unexpected - news when Rovio announced its first significant round of job cuts in October.

The good news is that the company has concluded those negotiations and has confirmed around 110 job losses, compared to the 130 original headline figure.

In terms of areas worst hit, Rovio has shut down its development studio in Tampere, consolidating its Finnish operations at its head office in Espoo, near Helsinki.

Rovio also has a development studio in Stockholm.
