A day after they said demand remained high for their products, Evolution Gaming announced that they've been ordered to close their studio in Tbilisi, Georgia for the time being due to the impact of Covid-19 around the world.
The company announced the closure in an email, which read in part: "Evolution Gaming has been instructed by Georgian authorities to temporarily close the floor operations at its Tbilisi site. As a consequence, the workforce will be significantly reduced. A large part of the operations will be able to continue through the company's other studios in Europe."
The group did say that they've taken measures to protect staff in all of their studios, sanitizing and maintaining social distancing. Evolution is maintaining operations in seven other locations, and those spots are largely still operational as of press time.
