One Angry Gamer "You may have heard about the recent layoffs at Microsoft. It wasn’t quite across the board but 18,000 people managed to lose their jobs, or 14% of their total work force is now out of work, as noted by IGN. But why? What happened? Well, a small portion of those jobs – a head count of 200, to be exact [via Recode] – were from out of the Xbox Entertainment Studios department, a subsidiary of the Xbox group division that was in charge of taking Xbox into tinsel town and cooking up a storm of original programming content; that didn’t work out."
