Activision lay-offs affect 30 staffers globally

Tuesday, 19th February 2013 20:41 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Activision has confirmed a round of lay-offs, resulting in 30 staffers being made redundant from the firm’s licensed games division.


According to a statement handed to Kotaku
, the cuts were made to “align costs with revenues,” which is on ongoing process with any company. Also, the firm expected to release fewer games “based on license properties” going forward.

“As a result are realigning our structure to better reflect the market opportunities and our slate,” said the firm. “Approximately, 30 full-time employees have been impacted globally, which represents approximately one half of one percent of Activision Blizzard’s employee population.

“We are offering those employees who are impacted outplacement counseling services.”

The firm also acknowledged that now that Black Op 2 has launched, it’s making a “minimal reduction in staff to better align our development talent against the needs of DLC development.”

“The release of the DLC will not be impacted by this move,” said the firm.

    This is the company thats rolling in money and they’re laying off people? 30 at that? How much were these guys making? Activison makes like a Zillion dollars every year with COD and now that Sky Lander toy junk.

    Unbelievable :(
