THQ confirms staff redundancies at Kaos, Volition

THQ has confirmed it has laid-off 30 employees across Kaos Studios and Volition Studios.

Per a statement given to Gamasutra: "We have had to let go of 16 employees at Volition, our studio in Champaign, Illinois. We must adjust our workforce to fit the studio's current needs, which is a relatively common occurrence in the game development industry," said a representative.

"Steps are being taken to ensure team members affected by the transition are treated with appropriate concern. The changes are not expected to affect any current or future titles in development with Volition."

As far as lay-offs at Kaos were concerned, 17 employees were let go, but the firm maintains a "dedicated team in place that will continue to support Homefront with an ongoing, robust DLC and content plan, as well as working on pre-production for future games."

"We have made changes to ensure that the team size aligns to the current stages of internal product development," the statement added.

Outplacement assistance is being offered to those affected by the redundancies.
