007 Legends developer Eurocom has announced that it has let go of a good majority of its staff – down to 50 from 200.

In a statement to GamesIndustry International, Hugh Binns, Eurocom director, said: "We've fought to try and save as many jobs as possible, but the steep decline in demand for console games, culminating in a number of console projects falling through in the last week, left us with no option. Eurocom has retained a core staff of just under 50 employees and will be focusing mainly on mobile opportunities moving forward."

Eurocom has historically been active with the Bond franchise, as well as handling other license products and ports.
