Gamasutra and Twitter are reporting
that an unspecified number of Turbine
employees have been fired today in a new round of layoffs.
A Warner Bros.
representative responded with an official statement: "As part of our normal business process, we're routinely looking at the strategic alignment of our company. Unfortunately, in order for us to invest in growth areas at Turbine, we have to eliminate some positions. These are always tough decisions, which we don't approach lightly, but it's crucial that Turbine is structured in a way that reflects the current and coming marketplace."
Massively has reached out to Turbine for additional comments.
