Activision Lays Off Over A Hundred Employees


Posted August 14, 2008 - By jmanalang

A bunch of employees from Radical Entertainment and High Moon Studios have been laid off by parent company Activision Blizzard, according to various reports. Almost 100 employees at Radical Entertainment and 60 High Moon Studios workers were stripped away from their duties permanently.

Radical human resources VP Leah Rubin said this regarding the situation:

"Activision Blizzard is committed to making the best games possible and has elected at this time to reduce the number of titles that Radical is developing from four games to two. Therefore, we will be proportionately reducing the size of our studio."

Correction: Thanks to ShackNews, it has been clarified that both Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant and Prototype titles are not cancelled by the studios. So, expect these games to still arrive.

Most of Radical Entertainment's staff were working on Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant and the open-world action title Prototype, which will be imminently cancelled due to the "proportionate" employee reduction. High Moon Studios was reported to develop a sequel to The Bourne Conspiracy, but Ludlum Entertainment obtained the license once again last month.
