Double Fine lays off 12 staff
Double Fine has laid off 12 staff members after an unannounced project was unexpectedly cancelled by its publisher.
Tim Schafer relayed the sad news to GamesIndustry.biz, while noting that the company’s previously announced, and in development, games—Broken Age Act 2, Massive Chalice, and Grim Fandango Remastered—will all be unaffected by the departures.
Here’s Tim saying pretty much the exact same thing, in his own words:
“One of our unannounced projects was unexpectedly cancelled by its publisher, forcing us to reduce our staff by 12 people. Our remaining projects–Broken Age, Massive Chalice, and Grim Fandango Remastered, were unaffected.”
