Kotaku’s rumouring that between 80 and 90 staff have been laid off at the company’s Austin outfit. From the piece:

Another tipster tells us that a majority of those laid off were from the recently canceled Criminal team. So many people were laid off at the studio, the tipster says, that those who weren’t received a phone call Sunday night telling them to stay home. Everyone else who showed up were “processed and laid off.”
