Codemasters now 70 QA staff lighter [Update]

Tuesday, 6th October 2009 12:34 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Update: We’ve just had Codemasters on the phone to reiterate that no permanent staff have been affected by this in any way, and the 70 QA positions were held by temps reaching the end of contracts.

Original story:

Codemasters has confirmed to VG247 that it’s just dropped “around” 70 QA staff, temps designed to push through DiRT 2 and Op Flash: Dragon Rising.

We’ve just been told that those cut free today were “never on permanent contracts”.

We’re actually hearing a slightly different story from dev contacts, but hopefully details will become clearer later today.

    ummm, almost ALL QA jobs are temp’s, especially in america that way they dodge giving you healthcare n stuff.

    stay light small teams are best for this ression. Also I think that they should produce indie games, you don’t always have to make a huge budget game to make alot of money.
