High Moon Studios, developer of the recent Transformers games as well as the upcoming Deadpool game has been hit with layoffs Kotaku’s reporting. According to them, 40 members of High Moon Studios were laid off once development on Deadpool was competed.
When contacted, here’s the official statement released by Activision:
“Activision Publishing consistently works to align its costs with its revenues – this is an ongoing process. With the completion of development on Deadpool, we are taking a reduction in staff at High Moon Studios to better align our development talent against our slate. Approximately, 40 full-time employees will be impacted globally. We are offering those employees who are impacted outplacement counseling services.”
We hope the guys affected by these layoffs land back on their feet, because we know how much it sucks to lose a job you love.
