Layoffs Hit The Deadpool Team
Posted By: Marcus Lawrence
Layoffs are happening at the High Moon Studio. These are the same developers that worked on Transformers: Fall of Cybertron and the upcoming Deadpool game featuring Deadpool (as himself), Cable and many more.
This information comes from Kotaku and in a statement to IGN, a representative of Activision had this to say:
“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.”
This news sucks because it’s never easy to hear about people losing their jobs. So to the 40 people that lost their jobs, we here at GGN offer our deepest condolences.
