38 Studios and Big Huge Games Lay Off Entire Staff

It’s a sad day in the gaming industry. Big Huge Games and 38 Studios (Kingdoms of Amalur) have both laid off their entire staff. After selling an amazing number of games for a new IP, Kingdoms of Amalur has been considered a failure. 1.2 million copies of a new IP is a great number and KoA: R was critically acclaimed. It could be a possibility that used games sales may have been one of the issues.
