Gameplay is poised to axe as many as 20 people from its operation following a decision to downsize the games portal company.

It is also planning to close two offices in Colchester and Wimbledon. Operations will now be focused in Vine Hill (London) and Leeds.

Tim Coles, MD of Gameplay, confirmed that the company was undergoing restructuring but said that nothing had been decided yet and that the company was making a number of changes which "may lead to redundancies".

Sources close to Gameplay told Reg that some staff left on Friday but Coles denied this.

One source told Reg: "There are lots of very, very, very unhappy people here, with 20 redundancies and a complete loss of faith from those working at the heart of the company." ®
