Big Huge Games hit by redundancies

Wednesday, 1st April 2009 15:36 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Layoffs are happening over at Big Huge Games.

The Baltimore, MD, studio was informed by THQ a few weeks ago that if a buyer wasn’t found, the Catan and Rise of Nations developer would be shut down.

“These actions were unfortunate but were necessitated by the difficult economic environment,” said THQ.

It is not known at this time how many staff have been made redundant, nor what will become of the firm’s current project – an RPG by Elder Scrolls creator Ken Rolston.

Thanks, Develop.
