Layoffs Hit Obsidian
 
Layoffs Hit Obsidian [ Company -> Update ]
Posted by POOPERSCOOPER Wed 27 Apr 2011, 12:34 AM

Obsidian, the developer we all know, has had some lay offs and I guess it's pretty common over there because some are saying that this is the 8th layoff thing.

It seems that some layoffs have hit Obsidian Entertainment, according to the Twitter feeds of ex-staff saying they've been let go. Akil Hooper tweets: "11 years, nearly a dozen shipped titles, Designer, Lead, Producer. 1 cancelled game, survived 7 layoffs, 8th got me. Not a bad track record." QA tester Ashley Betters tweets: "No longer work at Obsidian. I guess this means I will have to start buying my own pens." A tweet from Justin Reynard offers sympathies: "Today marks my 3 year anniversary working at Obsidian Entertainment. To my coworkers (and sadly the ones we've lost) you guys are amazing.<3" Producer Jason Fader adds, simply: "*sigh*." A post on the Obsidian Forums says: "According to LI, producer Tess Treadwell and designer Sydney Wolfram (and three interns) seem to be got laid off too." Thanks VG247.


Pour a drink for all the fallen homeboyz.
