Industry layoffs

A story on Develop highlights some of the problems in the game industry right now. In the past year or so, I’ve seen more studio closures than I expected even in this recession. Developers that I had previously thought of as strong have either had decent layoffs or outright closed. As reported in the Develop article, the study doesn’t seem to have 100% accurate data, but it probably under-estimates the job losses.
