Rovio has wrapped up negotiations with its staff and announced that it will show the door to roughly 110 employees, instead of the initially estimated 130. The game studio provides employment to a total of 814 people worldwide and operates two offices in Finland, one in Espoo and one in Tampere. Rovio in a statement published on Thursday also says that it will close its office in Tampere in order to centralise operations in Finland to Espoo.
