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.
