THQ issues round of lay-offs, internal studios unaffected

THQ has announced a round of lay-off today, affecting its administrative and publishing departments. The firm didn’t provide information pertaining to how many employees were let go, but said the job losses occurred outside of its five internal studios: THQ San Diego, THQ Montreal, Relic, Volition, and Vigil. THQ announced earlier this week it was exiting the kids’ licensed games category, to focus on its core game franchises and digital initiatives. Thanks, Joystiq.

    I don’t want to see the artists out of work but I would like to see THQ go under.

    Please tell me Brian Farrell was included in those layoffs.

    Kudos for not letting it affect the studios though. That’s more than you can say for Activision and EA.

    THQ – Have Volition make a spiritual successor to the freespace series or Descent, and you would have a hit on your hands. There is nothing, nothing at all, like Descent or Freespace currently on consoles…….

    Meh, I’d rather it was Ubisoft, they’d deserve it.
