THQ has confirmed that were fired about 30 employees at the studio of Kaos Studios and also at Volition. Published by LusoGamer.com
so many closures and jobs being cut :(
They were laid off, not fired. There's a huge difference. If you're fired, you can't claim unemployment benefits. If they were laid off, that's not at all uncommon in the gaming industry like the articles says. Homefront is done, no need for a full staff anymore. I'm sure when a new project comes along, those guys will be getting calls.
Yup, a game developers to a degree is almost like seasonal workers.
True... I guess it's like, they filled their contractual obligations, anything extra is a bonus.
Yeah. 30 families in a couple of troubles now.
thats what they get for trying to make a generic shooter. YOUR FIRED.
Really.... just stop. What game have you made?
you won one free internet.
yeah it seems alot of companys are letting people guess it is hard to stay in business so they have let people go
well Homefront just released and it sold very well I don't believe it would be because Kaos is in any danger. Also doesn't this usually happen after a release seeing as now that the development of larger bulk of the game is done now all the manpower needed is one enough to make smaller DLC and release patches
If you care about your employees you wont ship a game with broken multiplayer.
no, "If you care about your CUSTOMERS you wont ship a game with broken multiplayer"
well its not as if you can say no to either of those statements. They are both true.
now i feel terrible for returning it unopened back to amazon for crysis 2 instead
Not as terrible as I feel for activating the PC version and been stuck with it for ever!
