"On February 22, 2017 Kiz Studios restructured three of our gaming studios in order to focus on our new Global Services practice," stated the Kiz representative in a statement. "This process maintains strong teams in our Charleston, Atlanta, and UK studios while allowing us to adjust to current market trends and continue the development of high quality games."

We ran a studio spotlight on Kiz Studios back in October 2016. Anyone affected by the layoffs are encouraged to reach out to us via email with any infromation, with confidentiality guarenteed.
