Angry Birds developer lays off 110 staff, closes studio

Angry Birds publisher Rovio announced plans to cut 16 percent of its workforce in early October, which approximated 130 jobs. That number is now down to 110, as the studio concluded its employee negotiations this week. As part of Rovio's reorganization plans, it opened up "several positions" to internal applicants, so the final number of layoffs for the publisher is expected to change as the company fills those new roles.

The story is too old to be commented.

Man, Angry Birds blew up big and faded just as fast. You can tell when they pimped out this IP to everything under the marketing umbrella.

Sux for the people who got laid off.

Maybe an Angry Flappy Bird is in order?

Perfect example of over-monetizing right there, should have known when to slow down as the cow only has a certain amount of milk. Hopefully the devs find work fast and go back to living their life again.
