Next-Gen has learned that Redwood Shores-based Hudson Entertainment has laid off approximately half of its workforce. All of the layoffs occurred within the company's mobile division this morning, according to a source who wished to remain anonymous.
Their mobile division has not been profitable for about the last year-and-a-half or so," the source said. "They've just been having a lot of trouble getting their games onto big carriers like Verizon and Cingular. It's a very competitive market place."
He pegged Hudson Entertainment's workforce at around 50-70 people total, meaning layoffs ranged somewhere between 25 and 35.
