The hits just keep coming folks. I’m mad as hell about this one for a few reasons. They only announced there would be layoffs, not the size or scope or the teams that might be affected. So most folks are now just in this limbo of wondering if they’ll be fired or not. On top of this, according to folks I know at ArenaNet, a lot of staff found out about these layoffs 10 minutes before the meetings about them. Kotaku published this article before some folks in ArenaNet got confirmation that there would be layoffs.
Games really need to unionize cause layoffs just seem to be getting more and more common.
