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.
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.

Nothing says DiRT 2 like tattoos, breasts, and guitar riffs, apparently.
That is what Codemasters is using to promote the racer, at any rate, via a Flash game called Dirty Tats where you draw tattoos on a lady’s cleavage.
Durty taht more like, or at least that is what we came up with after about 30 minutes of playing. We aren’t really that creative either.

DiRT 2′s Ralph Fulton’s told VG that Natal, as lovely as it is, will never be a standard controller for racing games.
“I certainly don’t ever see it replacing the wheel or the controller as the principle controller method,” he said.
Don’t panic, though, Natal-based racing fans. The motion-sensing system and traditional control aspects could very well collide to form a beautiful melange of car-based gaming simulation inputs.
“That’s not to say that I don’t think you could do some really cool things, particularly with Natal, which can function as additional control over and above the controller in racing games,” Fulton added.
More through there.
