Layoffs Reported At Maxis, Too

The economy continues to turn the screws on video game developers. Reports of layoffs at both Raven Software and Maxis have surfaced this afternoon, with confirmation coming from the respective owners of each studio, Activision and Electronic Arts.

No word on how many were laid off at Maxis either, but here's what the company told Kotaku.

"Often in the video game industry, the size of a studio fluctuates in response to business conditions. In this case, EA has taken action to reduce the workforce at Maxis as we focus the business and focus Maxis. EA remains fully committed to Spore and other IP within Maxis, with games planned for launch in the next few months, including Spore Hero, coming to the Wii for the first time, and Spore Hero Arena on the DS. All eligible employees will receive severance and outplacement assistance."

If you have any information on the layoffs, drop me an email.
