Company just resizing, is all.

Following the generally poor critical reception of Remember Me, there were initial fears that developers Dontnod may be filing for bankruptcy. The developer has now dismissed those claims, saying that they are instead undergoing what is known in France as a “judicial reorganisation”.
“There are some rumors about the bankruptcy of Dontnod,” said CEO Oskar Guilbert to GamesIndustry International. “There is no bankruptcy, Dontnod is not in bankruptcy.
“We are in something called in France ‘judicial reorganization’ which allows us to re-adapt our production pipeline to the new situation. Because as you know we finished a game called Remember Me for Capcom which was out in June 2013, last year. This game, I think it’s important to mention, is number two in terms of downloads on PlayStation Plus in Europe, so it’s a big success on the digital side at least.
“We started new projects and those new projects need some investment and we decided to resize the company in order to match these new needs. That’s why we needed judicial reorganization.”
