Rumor: Prototype Developer Radical Cut In Half

Kotaku writes: Radical Entertainment, developer of Prototype and The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, has been hit with substantial layoffs today, according to development sources close to the Vancouver-based studio. Approximately 90-plus employees have been let go, sources say.

That's about half the studio's headcount, apparently, affecting two of the three development teams at the Activision Blizzard owned developer. Radical's most recent game, the open world action game Prototype for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, was met with a positive critical response and solid initial sales.

The story is too old to be commented.
