Raven Software Issues Layoffs

Activision has confirmed to Kotaku that Wolfenstein developer Raven Software is in the midst of “slightly reducing its workforce to better reflect the studio’s upcoming slate.” In other words, a whole bunch of people are, sadly, out of the job.

According to Kotaku’s sources, the layoffs were partly the result of the poor performance of the company’s latest release, Wolfenstein (currently sitting in the mid-70s on Metacritic).  Additionally, the fact that the developer’s sci-fi FPS Singularity was recently delayed until next year forced some personnel shifts that apparently led to the reduction from three internal studios to two.

Activision and Raven have yet to reveal the total number of layoffs, but a source told Shacknews that as many as 56 of the developer’s 180 employees have been let go. But again, no official numbers have been announced.
